ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY SITE!  here, i SHARE MY PASSIONS, TRAVELS, STYLE, TASTE, WORK, EXPERIENCES AND INSPIRATIONS.  I ALSO HOPE TO CONNECT WITH LIKE MINDS AND SHED SOME LIGHT IN SOME WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. 

being BORN AND RAISED AT THE OCEANS EDGE IS SOMETHING I WILL NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED.  HAWAII IS TRULY PARADISE AND IM SO FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO CALL THIS SPECIAL PLACE, HOME.  GROWING UP, THE BEACH WAS OUR BABYSITTER, PLAYGROUND AND CHURCH.   for me, surfing was APART OF GROWING UP (FAMILY BONDING) WHICH EVENTUALLY TURNED INTO A PASSION AND HOBBY OF MINE, THAT I NOW GET TO MIX IN WITH WORK. 

GROWING UP, I’VE ALWAYS BEEN HEALTH CONSCIOUS and very active, THANKS TO MY PARENTS.  aS KIDS, WE NEVER HAD THE LUXURY OF GRABBING A BAG of doritos or a fruit roll up FROM THE PANTRY TO TAKE as a SNACK FOR SCHOOL.  i grew up eating apples and oranges, playing soccer, water polo, dancing hula and tahitian , surfing, body surfing and always playing outside.

I didn't START MODELING until WHEN I WAS 15 and I CERTAINLY BEGAN ADAPTING TO THIS EVER CHANGING, growing INDUSTRY. MODELING HAS ALLOWED ME TO EXPLORE AND EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT CULTURES AND PARTS OF THE WORLD I'D NEVER IMAGINED I'D GO.  WHEN I'M NOT TRAVELING, I'M LIVING BETWEEN HAWAII AND LOS ANGELES AND WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, I'M FOCUSING ON MY HEALTH AND WELLNESS AT HOME.  ITS TRULY BEEN SUCH AN AMAZING JOURNEY SO FAR and I can't wait to see where I go next!

love + light
