My Cousin’s Wedding Rehearsal Dinner


My entire immediate family and most of my extended family attended the wedding rehearsal dinner for my cousin Laura at Alamo, California on 10/14/2018.

I have to make it clear, that I’m nothing if it weren’t for my parents and sisters. Now, I have my three nieces who inspire me to keep hustling on creating value for others and making our world more peaceful. On top of that, I’m lucky to have great uncles, aunties, and cousins. I love them all.

Children of a Neverending Summer


The children of a neverending summer jumping off a stepladder into the ocean. As adults, life can come at us hard. Children remind us to live in the present moment. They clearly define mindfulness by the way they live. Beautiful Haleiwa, Hawaii with my friend Mike who added comments on the moment. We reminisced when we were children. We could relate on how these children felt, not wanting the moment to end, playing until the last drop of sunlight.

2017 Halloween


On Halloween evening, October 31, 2017, I had fun giving candies to children at my friend Mike Noguchi’s house in Pearl City, Hawaii. For the first group of kids, I was so happy to see my friends Scott and Michelle Miyasato’s 2 youngest daughters and Mike and Rachael Lee Oshiro’s daughter with their friends!!! That highlighted my day!!! Later that evening we ate pasta, and I helped Ashley Kirito with her business plan to expand her business servicing horses. Pictured here is a Jade plant for good luck from my friend Mike Noguchi. I have so much gratitude for those moments!!

Building Toy


On October 5, 2017, I had a lunch meeting at Ja Gal Chi Restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii with my friend who has the rights to launch a toy in the United States that can build things. In this picture, I made a three-legged dog. There are also large pieces for children’s furniture and accessories. I’m doing business development work for her.
