The more you're willing to share, the better I can reciprocate in painting a picture that really tells about who you are...
...and that of course starts with telling you a little bit about me.
I am a purveyor of both coffee and whiskey.
I love movies. I'm that guy: the walking IMDB.
I'm pretty open-minded with music: over the course of a day in traffic we'll traverse Spotify from Ariana Grande to Journey to Metallica to Otis Redding and back again.
Occasional geocacher. Part-time redditor.
Full-time 49er Faithful.
Also, go Bulls!
I love my wife, Alvie. I love my daughter, Everest.
I love every minute I get to spend with them.
I keep them in mind when photographing others:
"Put in your shoes, what photos would I want the most?"
I shoot with both digital and film cameras -
each has a place and purpose.
I grew up in Hawaii, and the islander culture
reflects the way I treat others.
With respect. With dignity. With Aloha.
This is I know for sure -
we can't afford to take ourselves too seriously.
I believe everyone has a story worth telling,
I believe in dreaming the big things,
I believe in cherishing the little things.
When we meet, expect a warm hello.
Expect a handshake.
Expect a hug.
And expect to smile. Expect to laugh.
Expect to relax and drink it all in.
Expect to be greeted like a long-lost relative,
treated like a good friend,
and guided by a photographer
who values the experience as much as
the memories he'll help create.
