Teddy Jennings

Teddy holds a Japanese Permanent Residency status and has lived in Japan for nearly 14 years. He originally came as a study abroad student with Princeton & Doshisha Universities and is a graduate of Oberlin College where he double majored in Economics and East Asian Studies.  Most of Teddy’s  formal career has been in  finance though he has consulted friends on their personal living spaces for 9 years.  Seeing his friends enjoy upgraded beautiful living spaces motivated him to start this business believing more Tokyoites could also reap the peaceful benefits transforming their terraces into a relaxing place to escape to in this bustling city!
