I grew up in the United States, Japan, and Hong Kong. I started trading stocks when I was 13 years old, and was a professional poker player before I moved to Tokyo in 2007 to work as a Japanese Government Bond Trader at a U.S. investment bank. I really enjoyed trading, but I could not ignore the opportunity and exciting challenge of building a platform like Zehitomo.
Zehitomo started as an idea and a conversation with my co-founder Jordan. Then, as we worked on the platform, we found more highly-motivated people and our team started to grow. We are still growing, and I am glad to be part of a team that works together to solve problems and improve the product.
I think flexibility is important when optimizing for business, so in addition to the current goals of Zehitomo, we will evolve as a team and add new challenges as we progress.
