Ever since I made the decision to go into this competitive world, not only am I happy with my lifestyle, but my passion keeps getting aﬃrmed with each photo shoot.
While on my travels, I developed connections with hundreds of talented creators around the world. Now I work both as a model and a content producer, creating work and developing projects from all parts of the globe with several teams.
For the videos on the OUR WORKS page, I am the director who leads the team in developing the concept and who ﬁnalizes the main delivery for the client.
My goal as a producer is to respect each creator's work and style, while also meeting the needs of our customers. I thrive to build incredible relationships with all the talented creators I’ve connected with, and continue to match them to a full range of projects.
We are always striving to create work that our customers will love, as well as matching their need for quality and budget.
Japanese fashion model, content producer, and a blogger.
Being Japanese and American with some Italian descent, Karina's modeling career started in Osaka when she was 11-month old.
She moved to California when she was 15, and in 2017, after leaving San Francisco State University, she pursued her Bachelors in economics at Osaka Prefecture University, while doing modeling works in the side, traveling back and forth Osaka and Tokyo.
She started her career as an international model where she received over 70 model contract offers from agencies around the world and worked for many different brands/companies, including Vogue, Elle, Airbnb, DIESEL, and BMW.
After successfully completing model contracts with agencies, she is now based in Saigon as a freelance model.
While on her travels, she developed connections with hundreds of talented creators around the world. Now she works both as a model and a content producer, creating work and developing projects from all parts of the globe with several teams.
She developed a production system where she takes part in concept planning, team formulation, direction, and performing as a model, created “A minimal production system“ which made it possible for the production to be more affordable and smooth, by removing all the intermediary steps.
By implementing her own production system, she allowed modeling to be remote where she works wherever/whenever with her teams, and now representing “a digital nomad model” and inspiring Japanese people to pursue the lifestyle/workstyle they truly want without being stranded in the cooperate system through her blog, “Nomadel”.
