Hiro got his first glimpse into the world of film and television when he received his SAG card at the young age of 12. By the time he was 16, he convinced his parents to let him finish high school early and move by himself across the country in order to pursue his life long dream of becoming a stuntman. For the last 25 years he has used his martial arts and motocross background to fulfill that dream.
In the beginning Hiro knew little about the stunt industry. But in 1986 when stuntman and family friend, Shane Dixon, took him to visit the set of the first Lethal Weapon, Hiro was hooked. He knew he had to be a stuntman.
He began his career working on early Roger Corman films. Shortly after, he worked his way onto the popular kids show, Power Rangers where he spent the next 7 years perfecting his craft and learning what it took to be a stuntman. His hard work paid off. Since then, Hiro has worked on over 150 films and television shows. He has been nominated for 2 Taurus World Stunt Awards and continues to work on some of the industry's top shows as a stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director. In 2002, Hiro became a member of the Directors Guild of America, allowing him to move into the next phase of his career as a film maker. His directing accomplishments include several short films, t.v. shows, commercials, and a full length feature film. He became a series director on Supah Ninjas, for which he won the Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination last year.
Despite all of his hard work, Hiro also enjoys taking time off to travel and spend time with his family. His children; Chloe, Chaeli, Kai, and Takéo and wife, Jahnel.
