Nozomi is an actor and a filmmaker based in Tokyo. After training at Goldsmiths University in London, Nozomi returns to Tokyo, and since then has been in major international projects such as Vimeo Staff Pick of the Month, ‘Donny the Drone’ (dir. Mackenzie Sheppard), Netflix Movie ‘The Outsider’ (dir. Martin Zandvliet) as well as popular domestic projects such as ‘One Cut of the Dead Hollywood’ (dir. Yuya Nakaizumi), ‘Masquerade Hotel’ (dir. Masayuki Suzuki), and Netflix series ‘Yume Wo Ataeru’ (dir. Ishin Inudo).
Nozomi plays a wide range of characters both in film and theatre thanks to his ethnically ambiguous look, professional actor training and Japanese, English and French speaking skills.
Nozomi also works alongside fellow actor Kai Hoshino Sandy as a directing duo “nozosandy” creating films based on their shared experiences growing up in Japan with a multicultural background.
