Art director, graphic designer, nature-lover, and multidisciplinary creative from Kailua, Oʻahu. Currently in-house art direction and design at Island Snow Hawaii (August 2021 - Current). In addition, interim graphic designer for Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (May 2024 - Current). Graduate of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with a BFA in graphic design. 

Professional and personal work is reflective of crafting visually cohesive and dynamic ecosystems across different platforms. What energizes me most is place-based design and my own Hawaiian identity. Being kānaka maoli, design has given me a voice to speak up or rather show what it means to be a Hawaiian in a rapidly changing and westernized world. 

Whether preserving a brand's essence or crafting imaginative realms for campaigns, I aim to innovate while remaining anchored in the brand's core identity. I draw inspiration from my background in painting, photography, and clothing retail, which has honed my skills in composition, spatial layout , color utilization, and business mechanics. My diverse skill set enables multidisciplinary creativity in collaborative projects. Of all, I strive to remain a student in life, constantly educating myself, and consistantly curious. 

Aʻohe pau ka ʻike ka hālau hoʻokahi.
All knowledge is not taught from the same school.
