Master Sushi Chef
I cook with my senses and feelings and am inspired by my surroundings and whats growing around me. I live for the ocean, grew up on a commercial fishing boat, and feel a strong connection to the Hawaiian Islands, culture, and surf movement. My family is everything. Id be lost without my wife. My philosophy is basically art is life. I feel I am constantly learning, growing and evolving.
