Mike's passion has always been the blend of communication, technology, and business; starting his career in one of the largest Internet service providers while still a university student.

While pursuing a business degree and a minor in Japanese, Mike utilized and became passionate about many types of technologies including enterprise software,  networking, and communications technologies. 

While always having the dream of living abroad, it was clear to him that his understanding of technology, business needs, and Japanese culture would be best utilized as a technology recruitment consultant in Tokyo.

The marriage of technology and business continue to capture Mike’s imagination after graduating and moving to Japan where he helps top-tier companies find talented people who love to accomplish goals.
