I've been infatuated with cameras and capturing moments from a young age. Growing up on the north shore of Maui and constantly being in the water has influenced me immensely. The ocean is ever-changing, always coming and going. I've carried those qualities into my work and life, and am constantly on the move. My background in surfing and action sports has trained me to be fluid and adaptable, to always get the shot and deliver excellent work. Whether documenting the pursuits of those riding the world's largest waves, or the raw energy of live music, I seek to show the world what I see, to capture unique stories, and to inspire others to explore. I'm passionate about all things surf, music, travel, and art. Thank you for stopping by!
