I have been a lifeguard for over 10 years, I'm originally from Hilo but now I live in Kahana, West Maui. I have been getting more actively involved in important things (conservation/politics) going on in Maui since 2007, before that I was more into social/athletic activities. I am currently President of the Save Honolua Coalition a 501c3, a member of the Maui Nui Marine Resource Council, a Ka Ipu Kukui Fellow, and member of E Alu Pu.
I love Hawaii because I was born and raised here and it is the only home I have known, I have visited other places and of all the places I've been I love it the most. I love the culture, the people, the weather, the 'aina, the kai and the possibilities for self-sufficiency.
