I drafted white papers that ultimately led to several highly collectible performance cars. After a study team project in Hiroshima to validate a relaunch of Mazdaspeed, Scion and Toyota engaged me to develop website content, balancing between marketing, product planning and legal review. And now home to exceptional cars and gran turismo travel. For relaxation, I love to shoulder a fine shotgun and cultivate our rose garden.
