I'm 37, a retired Marine Officer, originally from California and have lived in Hawaii for 13 years. I swam for the University of Hawaii from 1992-1997. I am currently working on my thesis in an M.F.A. in Digital Cinema (3 year program from National University). My thesis film is a surf ecology documentary about preserving and conserving the North Shore of Oahu and a history of the IPS and the Hui O He'e Nalu. I became interested in making films in 2008. I'll have a film trailer out in May when I start editing.
