I was raised in an ocean culture family and am an avid surfer. I was lucky enough to work as an Ocean Lifeguard in both Hawaii and California. I enjoy anything that keeps me in the water wether it is surfing, diving, paddling canoe, sailing or swimming. I'm excited to share my passion and the culture of Hawaii that has had such a strong impact on my life. 



I've had a close relationship with the ocean since my hanabada (childhood) days, being fortunate enough growing up on Maui.  My background includes working with youth, lifeguarding, and emergency medicine on Maui. I enjoy using tours as an opportunity to educate people about Hawaii and how we can all become better stewards of this earth.
