Nisei male. Born August 2, 1930, in San Mateo, California. During World War II, removed with family to the Tanforan Assembly Center, California, and the Topaz concentration camp, Utah.

After leaving camp, returned to San Mateo, and served with Military Intelligence in Japan and Korea during the Korean War. Became involved in numerous Japanese community organizations.
