About Me

I am the  Founder and Lead Consultant of Burton Consulting International, delivering Technology Consulting, Business Communications, and Cross-Cultural Training services to Japanese firms worldwide and companies doing business with Japan. 

Traditional Japanese Gate



For the past 20 +years, I have supported companies in the areas of online marketing and advertising, technology consulting, business analysis, and English communications.

In my extensive work as a business analyst in Technology, I honed the ability to view challenges from a systems perspective and was the bridge between the business and technology. I combine this expertise with my cross-cultural experience, acquired from years living and working in Japan, to design and deliver solutions for my clients ranging from start-ups to global companies. 

I am a technology optimizer, Certified Executive Coach, trouble shooter, and business communicator for Japanese companies seeking to meet the evolving demands of the global business environment.
