Move the Chains

Claudio Toyama knows hardship all too well. In our conversation, he recalls the time when he lived in London, was deep in debt, and didn’t have enough money to pay the rent.

“Because a friend believed in me, I was able to get out of my predicament and move the ball down the field,” he says. His story reminds us that tough times don’t last, but tough people do!
