College Hall C, room 206


I was born and raised on the beautiful Island of Moku o Keawe. I graduated from St. Joseph High School, and married my high school sweetheart Michele. We have seven children and have fostered over 40 children throughout the years. My background is in Public Safety and Education.

I was hired part-time initially in 2001, while finishing my degree in Administration of Justice, to help CSAV with their International Summer Course, various public outreach projects, and visiting schools to teach children about earthquakes and volcanoes. Soon I was hired full-time to work for CSAV, handling everything from travel documents to purchase orders to time sheets, and assisting with field work research as well.
