About: Aloha. I was born in American Samoa, but grew up and educated in Long Beach CA. I have been living in Hawaii, on the island of Maui, for the last 25 years. This is where I received all my dive training and have been teaching for the last 22 years, also I got my 10,000 hours in (if you can figure out the 10,000 hours reference you get a high 5!). I am really excited about joining the Pure Ocean family, and I hope I can share my love, knowledge and experience with you guys about the Vasa (Ocean).
