I’ve always lived near the beach, which has shaped and helped me grow in every area of my life. Joining the Surfrider team just felt natural. Natively Hawaiian, I was raised in Lake Forest, CA with my parents and brother who have taught me that family is always #1. I’ve always been both an athlete and an adventurer. Growing up playing football, soccer, skating and surfing - provided not only entertainment, but also developed the strong sense of confidence, discipline and strength that I take with me into each and every venture. Since moving to San Clemente and becoming a part of the Surfrider team in early 2013, I’m happy to go to work each day surrounded by the same culture, passion and energy that are fundamental in my life, and now my career.
