Steve developed his first website in 1994 – a bilingual site in Japanese and English – shortly before Netscape Navigator was able to display Japanese characters. Steve has since spent nearly a decade and a half building global brands and helping clients succeed online in the U.S. and abroad. A seasoned online business strategist and marketer, Steve has significant experience in the technology, entertainment, health care, publishing and travel & tourism industries, among others.
In addition to writing magazine articles and white papers about international online marketing and multilingual website development, Steve addresses audiences around the country, from the Japan Society of New York to the Software Association of Oregon.
Steve is a citizen of the world, with a focus on Asia, and currently resides in Portland, Oregon where he works for ISITE Design, an agency doing award-winning work for global clients from offices in Portland, Boston, and Los Angeles.
