2014 41st Tengen title, Preliminary round B
In 2014, he qualified as a professional with the Kansai Ki-in.
2013 teacher at Osaka Go camp
Hyperpape I believe the chronology is wrong: in 2010 when he played in the US Open, the reports were that he had been an insei in Japan where he had spent some/much of his youth, but was coming to the US for college.
According to his profile at the Kansai Ki-in website his go motto is "Without haste but without rest."
