Fluent in English, Chinese and conversational in Japanese. I have six years of experience in China and have worked extensively with Chinese companies and with factories here. I have experience in sourcing, contract and price negotiation in Chinese as well as English.
I have experience in management in running operations in an all Chinese environment. My most recent experience saw me overseeing a team of 50+ workers in a factory making high end scale model aircraft. Here I created a quality control system from the ground up and reduced production waste by 60%. I was also able to reduce missed orders and deadlines by 75% by increasing communication between departments and better organizing materials, information and personnel on hand.
The majority of the time I am based in ShenZhen, China, in one of the largest manufacturing hubs in China. I know what it is to work with the Chinese and to get things done, let me put that knowledge to work for you.
My Story... 我的故事。。。 私の物語。。。
I have always had an undying love for China and greater Asia. Indeed that is what drew me out here more than six years ago, leaving my friends and family, everything I knew behind, led by my other great love, for adventure and the unknown, in search of the path less traveled. I believe, that to truly know who one is and what one is capable of, one must put themselves as far out of their comfort zone as possible. While out of mine I was able to learn to speak and read Mandarin Chinese at a near native level, learn how to survive and thrive in the Chinese business community. I have learned about the Manufacturing industry working for more than two years at and with Chinese factories, doing operations, quality control and assurance, as well as price and contract negotiation, it was here that my Chinese abilities became invaluable. It is my goal to continue working in the manufacturing industry here in China, and in other parts of Asia from my base in Shenzhen.
