Describe your perfect morning?
Haleakala Summit, 10,000ft above sea level can be reached by an amazing drive up the mountain, preferably in the early morning to reach the top before the sun comes up in order to view one of the most spectacular sunrises above the clouds. Gazing down upon the deep-set crater, the Big Island, and almost Maui’s entirety from such a high height is absolutely breathtaking. You can even choose to travel with a biking company such as Maui Downhill, and coast down the mountain all the way in to the cute town of Paia, after watching the magnificent sunrise of course.
Tell me a little about the city life?
Front Street, Lahaina, and the hippy-vibin’ town of Paia are some of my favorite places to shop and eat. From Lahaina Pizza Company, Kimo’s, Ululani’s Shave Ice, Star Noodle, and Bubba Gump’s on Front Street, to Cafe Des Amis, Flatbread Pizza Company, Mana Foods, Paia Fish Market, Tobi’s Shave Ice and Anthony’s Coffee Co. in Paia, my cravings achieve complete satisfaction. I recommend going out and adventuring as much as possible if ever in Maui, to fully experience the beauty and magic Maui holds.
Tell me something most people don't know about you?
One of my favorite things to do that truly allows me to realize my appreciation and gratitude for the island is photography. I love capturing the moment and the natural awe-inspiring beauty Maui contains. Maui is about spreading Aloha- love and kindness to all. Respect others and respect the land, it is as simple as that.
