I grew up on the Hilo side of the Big Island where I spent most of my youth surfing at Honoli’i and photographing my friends doing the same. I started my first photography business here on the island and photographed everything from small beach weddings to large groups at the resorts. After growing up on an island I realized that living in a big city was something I really needed to experience in order to grow as a person and a photographer. So, I moved to Los Angeles and within a few weeks of moving, a little luck and a smile landed myself a camera assistant job in the entertainment industry. I worked on a variety of TV shows such as “Renegade”, and “Malcolm in the Middle” and numerous movies. I briefly worked for Playboy Behind the Scenes and while I quickly learned that boudoir photography is not an interest of mine, I did learn how to pose people!love most: being a photographer. I love to kiteboard and on days when the wind is right you’ll find me boarding across Anaehoomalu Bay faster than ducks can fly (usually with a camera strapped to me somewhere)! I’m proud to call Hawaii my home and be able to do what I love!
