I travel and work a lot, and in those travels I lived in Hawaii. It reminded me a lot of the island that I was born on, and I made a new family of friends for myself while I was there. I always wanted to learn the Uke with my friend Achi while I was in Hawaii, but, I never could work up the courage to do it, weird I know. But, I've taken the plunge and now I'm in love with it!

I have a Makala Concert on its way to me and I'm brimming with excitement!
