He first attracted attention in his homelands of Hawaii, in 1998.  From then, he has progressed to one of the world’s foremost “global” ukulele players.  His playing ranges from Hawaiian traditional ukulele tunes, to American folk music, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and rock.  Truly wonderful.  He is a fifth-generation Japanese-American.
