You could say that my passion for real estate was built from the ground up. Born in a Tree House in Ha’ena, Kaua’i and raised on O’ahu’s North Shore, life’s journey has given me a deep connection and appreciation for our natural environment and our island home.
After graduating from high school, I remember holding a college registration form in one hand and a passport application in the other. In that moment, I chose to follow my passion for surfing for a year just to see if I could hold my own against the best in the world. I never imagined that it would turn into a 20 year career that would take me around the world. There were successes and failures along the way, but through it all I learned invaluable life skills.
In my preparation and commitment to being a student of my craft, I continued to learn and grow to be the best that I could be. This determination and unstoppable drive led me to earn an X-Games Gold Medal, 15 World Tour victories and most importantly, friendships and relationships along the way that will last a lifetime.
With a passport full of life experience, I transitioned into the action sports industry where I spent 10 Years as the Sales/Marketing and Distribution manager for the Pacific Rim of a global apparel brand. I was able to successfully build the business in my area exponentially and earned the title of Sales Representative of the Year for 3 consecutive years. My dedication to building long lasting relationships and serving my clients with the highest standard of hospitality is what I value most.
The sport of surfing played a huge role in my life, but I have always believed in following your passion. The real estate industry was something that had been calling me for years. I grew up working construction for two of the top builders in Hawaii and I learned every phase and facet of construction from the ground up. It inspired me to purchase and develop my first property at age 25. Over the years I have learned a lot about every aspect of real estate and how to safeguard the biggest investments we make in our lives. I put the highest level of commitment to honesty, integrity and an attention to detail into every transaction.
I absolutely love Kaua’i! Nothing makes me happier than adventuring around the island with my wife and my 3 children. I enjoy surfing, hiking the ridges and remote valleys, swimming in freshwater streams, golfing, snorkeling, or simply just lounging on the beach and soaking up the natural beauty. Kaua’i is truly a special place on this planet. It inspires me every day and I love sharing my unique blend of local knowledge with my clients.
