City, State you were born:
Honolulu, Hawaii - Oahu
How you got started in paddling:
My grandparents started the Leeward Kai Canoe Club in 1967, so I was pretty much born into it. We’re celebrating our 50th year next year!
What paddling activities you are involved in currently:
Outrigger, OC-1, SUP Surfing, Dragon Boating, Canoe Surfing
Other Interests that are important to you:
Not sure how to answer this? But, I love to surf, especially with my wife and kids. I enjoy canoe surfing. As much as I love to compete, I’m getting older so I’m starting to enjoy giving back by coaching and being more involved in the daily activities/operation of the club.
Races you may be participating in 2016 or goals for future in paddling/life:
Molokai Hoe 2016
Queen Liliuokalani Race
(Maybe) 2nd Dragon Boat World Cup - China
Haven’t thought too far ahead at the moment. but I do want to send a Leeward Kai crew to a couple races abroad next year to celebrate our 50th.
