I am the co-founder and content manager at Shiitake Creative, a Tokyo-based creative/consultant company. Prior to that, I was the editor in chief of the lifestyle web magazine Savvy Tokyo (www.savvytokyo.com) and the chief content manager at Tokyo Weekender, the oldest English-language media in Japan.

Shiitake Creative is the founding company of the Japan Travel Awards initiative (japantravelawards.com/en).
