  • How Can I Help You?

    Looking for a new job? Want to hire the best? Need focused support with your career growth? Have a new hire?

    20+ years as a Tokyo-based headhunter

    I actively recruit motivated bilingual talent with a specific focus on experienced advertising/marketing professionals for communications agencies and brand-driven companies.

    Get further faster in your career

    I can help you change jobs (and find a company/role you LOVE), get a promotion+raise, develop an effective career strategy, or simply get more clarity on how you can thrive in your career.

    Ensure your people investments succeed

    The first six months of a new hire or internal transfer are the most critical. Dramatically increase the odds of their success through focused and intensive "New-to-Role" coaching.

    A few times a quarter I do public speaking engagements and workshops in collaboration with Leadersラボ. I have two favorite keynote subjects: One on "7 Steps to Career Clarity" and the other on "How to Work With Recruiters and Get What YOU Want".

    From San Diego to Tokyo

    Born and raised in San Diego, CA, my entire career has been focused on business in Japan.
