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. Outside of work, I’m a from-time-to-time musician (DJing/music production/guitar-vocal) and video gamer (still discovering my new PlayStation 5).
