"Seiji is a phenomenal collaborator…in a short period of time, he was able to streamline our data management and tooling system, and support onboarding of our entire org to the new system. He is meticulous, creative, and solutions-oriented, often with little to no active direction. He was an invaluable resource to our organization, and any team looking for technical expertise paired with a strong communicator and collaborator would be very fortunate to hire Seiji."

"...what impressed me the most was how quickly Seiji was able to deliver - our timelines were borderline unrealistic (if not downright impossible), but because of Seiji's expertise and willingness to iterate quickly we were able to deliver by each milestone and then some…he was so easy to work with that he made what would have been very tedious and frustrating work actually rather enjoyable."
"He's one of those rare and extremely valuable team members who can bring creative direction and high level organization to a project, and then dig in to leverage his considerable technical skills in delivering a polished outcome."
