After graduating from university, Takeshi stayed in New York on a language exchange and was strongly inspired
by the melting pot of races and cultures. He then traveled around the world to experience the unknowns and
worked in Papua New Guinea as a Japan Overseas Cooperation volunteer. Upon his return to Japan, Takeshi worked
for a solutions firm as a social media operator/analyst before joining Sugata Research. Working at Sugata allows
Takeshi to be a bridge that builds connections between people as well as between things.
In his free time, Takeshi enjoys watching NBA, listening to podcasts, and visiting world heritage sites (passed Grade 1 of the World Heritage Examination).
