TARNATION! Sports T-Shirt model Tomomi is a New Yorker, but hails originally from Japan, then San Diego. She’s a multi-talented artist. As an actor, Tomomi has appeared in several indie films and is a versatile, black metal multi-instrumentalist. (Yes, this cutie plays black metal!) This is Tomomi’s first modeling experience, and first modeling interview!
I like football the best. To me, watching football games are exciting and outcomes are unpredictable till the end.
Favorite sports team?
The New York Jets! I especially like Rex Ryan for his funny, easy-going personality and positive thinking. And I like the trash talk!
Are you a city girl or a country girl?
Definitely a city girl, because of where I’m from. I was born in Tokyo and I’ve been living in NYC for almost a decade. Did I say I like trash talk? LOL!
Can you tell us a bit about your background?
I was brought up in Japan till my late teens when I made the move to the U.S. I’ve always been independent and eventually found my way to NYC after graduating college.
How did you get started with modeling?
Well, I’ve acted in two independent films and performed on stage as a multi-instrumentalist, so I have no problem being in front of the camera! Tarnation discovered me as a model, and here I am!
Composing music, listening to music and shopping.
Aha! An honest woman who admits to shopping as one of her 3 things. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…) So other than modeling, do you have any other professional aspirations?
I’d like to establish my black metal music project and release numerous albums.
Ok, I have a hint here, but I have to ask, What are your passions in life and why?
My passion lies in composing music, since I’ve been studying music from early childhood on. I play guitar and keyboards.
How do you describe your personality in 3 words?
Resilient, creative and flexible.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
As soon as I got on a packed elevator at my work, I noticed something smelled so bad from my shoes and everybody was looking at each other! I soon realized I stepped on dog stool on my way to work. I took almost a half an hour to wash the bottom of my shoes before I started working..
Heh, heh, Nice one! And How do you like modeling for TARNATION? (Now don’t bring up that last answer!
Oh, It was definitely one of the coolest experiences in my life. I feel awesome to model for cool designed t-shirts like these!
Thanks for your enthusiasm! We’re happy to have you. Now, you’d be even more valuable to us with a super power, so if you had a super power what would it be and why?
I wish I possessed Wonderwoman’s strength & power to save the world from evils.
Can you give us a demonstration of what you might do? OW! Stop giving me punches to the Jujunum! So what’s next for you?
Although I’m tied up with work for most of the time, I’d like to spare some time to finish recording my first EP, playing all the instruments on my own.
While saving the world from evils, no doubt. Talk about multitasking!!! Well, thanks Tomomi for joining us here today. You all can catch Tomomi’s lovely pics on our website here at TARNATION! Sports.
