Ayumi was instrumental in helping us bring some unique Japanese content to our show. Her knowledge of how to communicate with people and businesses in the Far East was of great benefit, and her research skills were superb. More so, her willingness to work around the difficult time difference meant that we made daily progress on what would otherwise have been a very frustrating task for a purely English speaking production team.
