Born and raised in Tokyo, with a unique multicultural background as the child of an English father and Japanese mother, I have always embraced diversity. After living in the UK for three years, I pursued my studies at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, graduating with a degree in International Management. Initially working in the automotive industry in Oita Prefecture, I discovered my passion for connecting with people, solving their desires and problems. Motivated by these experiences, I transitioned into the recruitment industry. In my free time, I enjoy activities such as taking a sauna, playing football, exploring nature, test driving new cars, and cherishing moments with my family and cats.
