My wife and I are blessed to raise four wonderful children in beautiful Hawai’i where they all enjoy surfing, hiking, SCUBA diving and hanging at the beach together as a family and with friends. I have always loved the outdoors, a good laugh, adrenaline producing activities like surfing, hiking, boating, dirt biking, climbing, skiing, cliff jumping, Boy Scouting and thinking outside the box (my thoughts get claustrophobic being locked up.) Because no two crooked smiles are created equally, my job is a smorgasbord of mental fun unleashing the perfection in every smile.

One of my most cherished life experiences was as a service missionary to the Japanese people in the Tokyo, Japan area. As a result, 少し練習不足ですが、日本語を話すことができます。If you don’t understand kanji or speak Japanese, this says I do. My family and I love Hawai’i, its culture and you, the people. We are humbled and thankful to serve you. Mahalo and Yoroshiku onegai shimasu!”
