What is your education background?
After graduating from Kalani High School, I attended Kapiolani Community College, University of Hawaii at Manoa, and also did a summer study abroad program at Salamanca University in Spain through Leeward Community College. However, my training in video production took place outside of the classroom and under the guidance and direction of longtime top local director Tim Savage, who I also have the privilege of calling my Uncle.
What do you love about video and creative storytelling?
What I love about video and creative storytelling is the power it has to make someone feel connected to another person, whether that person is in their own community or on the other side of the world. It has the power to inspire, to encourage, to inform, and to move people. I personally feel like I get a unique and intimate look at whatever it is I am filming, and the experience is always so special. I want to share that same experience with the world.
What are you up to these days?
Besides hanging out with my husband and our amazing dog, Kujo, I love spending time with family and friends, finding new shows to watch, new books to read, new places to travel to, and new ways to make my husband roll his eyes. When there is time, I love taking full advantage of living in Hawai’i by going hiking, camping or just spending the day at the beach.

I feel blessed to have had some unique experiences, from backpacking Europe and hang gliding in the Swiss alps, to competing in two jiujitsu tournaments, and being chased by a wild Komodo Dragon in Indonesia.
