Outside of work, as an ex-DJ and guitar/vocalist, he’s now focused on making electronic music part time (Traktor S3, Akai MPK Mini Mk3) and playing PS5 video games.

Over the years I have been fortunate to work across Germany, the UK, France, China, Singapore and of course Japan, gaining a strong understanding of what it takes to be a global leader. Some highlights from my professional life include helping Toyota stand up Woven Planet and grow it to 2,000+ staff, being the former Chair of non-profit ITS Japan’s Automated Driving Support Center and named one of the top tech entrepreneurs in Asia.
