I began this job with Susan by walking into the coat closet on my way out of the interview. As intense as the creative energy abounded at Matsumoto Design, we always had time for a good belly laugh too! What a great way to start a career in toys. This is where I found my commercial wings and was able to channel all those great ideas into what the consumer wanted to see on shelf. Susan had many great clients including Takara, Bandai, Buddy L, Hasbro just to name a few. I worked on projects for all.
