Navigating logjams and fly fishing the upper Chilikadrotna River for Alaskan King Salmon, riding currents with sharks above Blue Corner while suspended from a reef hook in Palau, and winning PRINT Magazine’s RDA award for self-publishing and photographing a book of calligraphy and martial arts — Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Art.


Steve recruits for in-house legal positions in Japan. He feels recruiting for the legal industry requires long-term commitment and finds great satisfaction matching the right candidate with the right position. Promoting client companies and careers – that’s what it’s all about.

Steve began recruiting in Tokyo in 1999 and co-founded Zensho in 2003 to offer a more personalized and specialized service.
