Q: What inspired you to join HKN?

Q: Where is your hometown and favorite place on the island?
I was born in Honolulu and moved to Japan for a while. My favorite place on the Island has to be the "look out" that's at the top of the hill when driving up Diamond Head. It's a great place to run by in the morning when the sun is about to come out.
Q: What video game / movie / TV show would you want to live in and why?
I want to live in the world of the TV show, "The Flash." If I lived in it, I wouldn't have to wait for another episode.
Q: What would you like to accomplish the most from your “bucket” list?
I used to think driving a car was cool, but now I absolutely hate it, so why not fly a plain?! I want to eventually have my own cessna in my backyard, once I buy a house with a backyard.
