My father, whom I am named after, was full blooded native Hawaiian.
Bachelors Degree in Political Science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a Juris Doctorate from the William S. Richardson School of Law.
I am currently the Executive Director of the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation.
I grew up in a time when I felt apologetice for being Hawaiian. My personal experiences have culminated in a deep and unshakeable understanding of how truly fortunate I am for my Hawaiian heritage. I strive in both my personal and professional life to ensure that no one need go through what I went through with respect to my Hawaiian lineage.
