I began my career in Tokyo during Japan's economic peak as an international marketing strategist at Mitsubishi Electric with unlimited investment in new products. I continued working globally for Toyota, Varian, USWeb, and startups leading marketing, sales, and business development. In 1998, I started one of the first online marketing businesses applying organic search advertising (SEO) building a global list of clients. I have always focused on innovating new ideas and technologies to monetization. In collaborating across organizational disciplines and cultures, I tune to relevant market trends with a creative eye for value and talent.
