I am a Hawaii-based lifelong audio enthusiast. According to family legend, I was a percussionist before I was born. Sound and music have profoundly impacted me for as long as I can remember. I am deeply moved by rhythm and harmony, flow and movement.
I was continually exposed to music. Playing the recorder as a wee lad led to school band, theater, and then playing in garage bands. When I was about 12 years old, my first experience with a portable FM radio and cheap stereo earphones was mind-expanding and a life-changing experience. I have been hooked on the magic of headphones ever since.
In university, I was a salesperson for a large retail electronics chain specializing in audio, video, and home theater equipment. With more experience, I began advising buyers on gear, room design, installation, setup, and calibration.
Music is also a language of culture, and a window into understanding people, place, and history. I have been compelled to listen deeply, embrace diversity, and seek high-quality sources of sound every day and everywhere I travel. My love for audio gear grew as a means to have the best experiences of sound. I love to share the journey with others who feel the music and share these passions. Aloha!
