I was born in Kita Senju, Tokyo and lived in Japan until I graduated from High School. Upon graduation, I moved to Tucson, Arizona where I attended University of Arizona.
I worked in the Telecom business throughout my college years and after college.
Having dual nationality, I knew I wanted to return to Japan someday and did so in 1998. I spent several years working as a teacher for Berlitz in Tachikawa and Hachioji.
Then a few years with a Japanese restaurant company opening restaurants in Singapore and Korea before joining East West Consulting in 2008.
I spent my whole career there in the manufacturing industry and specializing in the chemical area. I have assisted and made placements in: Oil/Gas/Lubricants, Plastics, Coatings, Personal Care, Agro, Electronic Materials and Fine chemicals. I have also assisted Tier 1-Tier 3 auto parts companies, machinery and packaging companies and made several placements with two of the top Strategy Consulting firms in Tokyo.
I love sports, mainly football, basketball, baseball and martial arts.
I hold a first degree black belt in karate and spent a couple of years boxing in university.
