Who is This Site For?
This site is intended for our ʻohana to use as a quick reference and others like ours. Busy parents in their 30s-40s that want to focus on ʻohana, while maintaining other priorities in their life. This is for parents that want to raise nice, caring children that are self-reliant and not afraid to try new things.
Our ʻOhana (Who We Are)
This is us. I won’t be sharing my kids’ real names, so we’re going to call my son “Captain C” and my daughter “Unicorn.”
I work as a full-time firefighter, part-time Information Technology Specialist, volunteer as a firefighter for our town, and am enlisted as a First Class Petty Officer in the Navy Reserve. Like you, I have a lot going on. But I’m not willing to let that take away from spending quality time with my ʻohana and making awesome memories. This blog is me sharing my experiences on that journey.
You’ll quickly notice I have a very strong passion for Hawaiʻi. I got hooked when I was only 13 years old and had the amazing opportunity to visit with my grandparents for their 50th wedding anniversary. I was lucky enough to spend four years of my active duty Navy enlistment stationed at Pearl Harbor. There were two other times I was blessed to visit the islands. My wife and I are talking about planning a trip there in the future. I created a website dedicated to Hawaiʻi while I was in college and still have the files. I’ll slowly be adding more of that content here.
