Check out Aloha Funwear @alohafunwear http://www.alohafunwear.com for Hawaiian and islandstyle clothing and products! The company mentored me to get into ecommerce, in which I was active between 2002-2012. Aloha Funwear has been in ecommerce since the 1990s.

For the past couple of weeks,
I’ve been working on a new brand to re-enter this sector of our market. Scared and excited!

In this picture, I modeled for the company in 2003.

Pink Clouds and Blue Skies in Pearl City, Hawaii


I love experiencing the moment when the glow of the setting sun make the clouds pink with the blue sky as a backdrop! These are pleasures that I didn’t fully embrace when I was younger. Whenever I’m outdoors, I take some time to breathe the fresh Hawaiian air and admire the beauty of Hawaii around me. It lifts my spirit everytime.

Practice: visual therapy & nature therapy. ⛅

We can only be brave if we’re willing to be vulnerable. 👊


We can only be brave if we’re willing to be vulnerable. 👊

If we want a dream, we have to put ourselves out there to judgment, rejection, and hate. 👊

If we want love, we have to open ourselves to judgment, rejection, and heartbreak. 💔

Play it safe or go for it?

I say, “Go for it!” 😊

At all times, we get a hell of a story.


It’s so far away.

Sometimes we get there.

Other times we don’t.

At all times, we get a hell of a story.
