Design = Problem solving

Ambition

In the future

The mission of my entire life is to connect Japan and the world especially the US as of now (04/2021). There are so many cultural differences and people are having a hard time and that is causing a delay in decision-making. Done is better than perfect is my favorite phrase and I would like to keep execute things to get success.
