Born and raised in Seattle Wash. My Father was a bar owner in Waikiki way back in the 70's. It was on Kuhio ave, it was called the Charlie Horse, located across the street from the old kuhio theatre, next to Hula's. I lived in Hawaii for 20 years and became a island boy. Hawaii is a such a huge part of who I am and I feel I am blessed to know and understand it. One day I plan to move back as really, there is no place like it, on Earth anyway.
