Thank you to a very cool blog – All Things Boys – a mother raising a family with twins and kids on the spectrum – for the nomination as a “Versatile Blogger!” There are a TON of great posts – I personally liked the recaps of their trip to HI and also, the post on Don Osmond and the MS Presentation. Truly inspirational.

- Tell 7 things about yourself
So – 7 Things about myself
- All time favorite food is crab paired with homemade teriyaki ribs / steak
- Best experience with my wife was living in Japan for two years shortly after we were married – priceless time I will always cherish
- Fav job of all time (besides being a dad) – working as a Japanese Tour Guide at the Polynesian Cultural Center
- Am bummed that my summer run plans are put on hold thanks to my knee injury. I’m getting too old to be playing volleyball as often as I do :(
- Love the idea of running my own business on a piece of land in Kula or Haiku with a ‘self sufficient’ lifestyle – growing a ton of our own food, solar power, water. . . that would be awesome. . . . working towards it. :)
- Grew up on Maui Hawaii – one of the lucky few
- Absolutely love my family – couldn’t be more blessed
My 15 Versatile Blogger Award Nominations – thanks to my wife for her input as well!

- Golden Malia: A mom and photographer capturing awesome pictures and stories about life on Maui! Makes me homesick

- Run21: Inspiring group of 21 Runners prepping for a half marathon and each trying to raise $1000 dollars for a Autism Support Group – YOU GUYS ROCK!
