I was born and raised in rural Hawaii among surfers and cattle ranches. I grew up milking cows, hiking over lava fields, and reading so voraciously that the library system transferred entire book series to our rural town to avoid mailing them back and forth. That sense of adventure has led me around the world. While I am now based out of San Francisco, I often spend extended periods of time in Arctic Norway and back home on Hawaii island (follow my travels here!).
I am passionate about living life to the fullest and value kindness and empathy above all else. I regularly take long haul flights for dates with loved ones and I'll happily jump on a plane to photograph the love in your life!
