Hi, I’m Daisuke Wakamiya or called Waka. I’m originally from northern part of Japan and lived in Tokyo more than 15 years. I had 10 years career as a hardware engineer developing digital cameras for Canon, and now an aspiration to learn different perspective and call for change to be an innovation catalyst leads me to MA Innovation Management in Central Saint Martins. My goal is to establish and take leadership of a small, passionate, and multidisciplinary team that will constantly brainstorm, rethink things, simplify design and come up with innovative ideas allowing us to harness the technology most effectively. My current concern is organisation culture, learning and its design to promote innovation. Apart from enjoying playing football and skiing, I am a dedicated cyclist who completed bicycle trip across Japan and I’m now ambitious to create a map of Tour de Europe.
