THE SAME 5 QUESTIONS

Q: Where are you right now? 
A: I’m in my place in Long Beach, California winding down from a day goofing off at the garage and riding the motorbike.
Q: Where did you grow up?
A: I grew up in Mililani, Hawaii. It’s a suburban town pretty much in the center of the island. I think that’s what kept us hungry.  For being a small town, a lot of talent has come out of there. Thinking back, considering we were on an island, a lot of my friends were doing a lot of really creative things such as ‘zine making, forming bands, BMX and of course skating and surfing. We all kind of fed off each other and I was really lucky to grow up there at that particular time and have that influence my work. It’s crazy but there is this small community of bike builders from Mililani that I still keep in touch with who live in Long Beach now as well. I think we’re all just trying to spread the Aloha!
 Q: What do you do for a living – what are your hobbies – how closely do these two overlap?
A: I am a metal fabricator/machinist/welder making gas tanks, seats, frames, and any other motorcycle and automotive parts…  I also manage the shop on the day to day.  My hobbies are building, riding and racing vintage motorcycles… And I still try to get out and skateboard and race cars when I can.
Growing up my hobbies were anything having to do with cars and motorcycles so that naturally lead to a day job in metal fabrication. I started building my own motorcycles under the moniker of Oni motorworks around 2005. I view most of my hobbies as directly informing and influencing my fabrication work. There is a complete overlap with most of it. The only thing that might fall out of line with all of it might be skateboarding but even then you could argue it still falls into line with the simple act of riding motorcycles in that there is this escape and it’s just plain fun.  Also, I meet great like-minded people in the same circles.
 Q: When did your relationship with PF Flyers begin? 
A: I was first introduced to PF Flyers around 2006 or 2007 by Alyasha. I was drawn to them for the simple, classic style. They instantly became my everyday shoe and because of their comfort, they also became my work shoes. Exactly what I was looking for.    
Q: What is your life motto?
A: Stay humble. Chances are there is someone out there better than you.
