Summary

Edit
I am a bilingual (Japanese/English) international sales, marketing and business development executive with an eclectic range of category experience spanning consumer packaged goods, performance sporting goods, soft goods, footwear, apparel, and restaurants. My international marketing skills were honed at Dentsu, Japan's largest advertising agency, and I went on to work on the brand side as a Marketing Director for Callaway in Japan where I co-developed and successfully implemented strategic business plans encompassing marketing communications, sales channel, and product development plans to drive top-line growth and margins. A collaborative and entrepreneurial spirit allows me to be successful in both corporate settings and as an independent consultant, as well as in leadership roles ranging from building a SE Asia regional sales organization to managing food preparation and service staff in a test restaurant in a Japanese department store. Building a warm rapport AND effective working relationships with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures is my bliss. An internationalist in lifestyle and values, I am willing to travel extensively and/or relocate to Asia Pacific. As a dedicated parent to a 5-year-old son, I am active in coaching and volunteering on children's projects. I am available for consulting, temporary and full-time positions with international businesses, particularly those focused on Asia Pacific, SE Asia and Japan.
