Bio: "I was born and raised on the island of O’ahu in Hawai’i and grew up in Kalama Valley about 5 minutes from Sandy Beach. I am first and foremost a father and a husband and a son. I am a vegan. I am a spiritual person, but I’m not religious. I am a musician. Music has been an integral part of my existence since before I can remember. I can always remember singing, just singing wherever and whenever, no matter how bad I sounded, I just always loved to sing. I played a few different instruments and finally settled down on the guitar at around 16. Soon after, I started writing songs, many horrible songs. I wrote at least 50 before I actually produced one I was proud of
