Profile
I majored in International Business and Japanese from San Francisco State University and spent a year at Waseda University as an exchange student. I came to Japan after graduating in 2005 and have been here since. My wife is Japanese and I have two daughters so I’ll stay in Japan long-term.
I started helping Accounting & Finance professionals secure promotions and pay increases from 2006. The candidate I work with are loyal, diligent, logical and intelligent professionals. I can’t imagine switching to a new career or specialism and consider myself lucky to have such a great network.

I attended UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) and studied international relations. My father is from Tokyo and my mother is from Kanazawa but I was born and raised in the United States. It is my pleasure to introduce jobs to candidates and assist their career development.

My hobby is water polo, which I have been doing for about 18 years.

After graduating, I played one season as a professional with the Adelaide Jets in Australia. Traveling to different countries has broadened my way of thinking about different cultures.

The Accounting & Finance function at smaller / medium sized foreign capital companies are run differently. We introduce candidates with strong experience working in smaller teams. These candidates have the know-how to add value to your back office from day one. We are constantly looking for top talent at small size companies. Rest assured, our matching will help with urgent hiring needs so management can get back to business as usual.
