Uncle Kimo's mother was born long before Hawaii was a state, and his great-grandmother was a citizen of the Hawaiian Kingdom under the reign of Queen Liliuokalani. After graduating High School, Uncle Kimo attended college in Santa Cruz, California, and would eventually remain California-based for 15 years before returning to Hawaii in 2004. He is a working TV travel writer/producer (with credits on the Travel Channel's Bizaar Foods, AOL Travel, Time-Warner's OC16 and COX TV in California and Nevada) who loves sharing the amazing mix of "gems" to be found in Hawaii.
Uncle Kimo is an avid "foodie" who has worked with Andrew Zimmern (of the Travel Channel's BIZARRE FOODS) and Karla Martinez of Univision's Despierta América. He is a seasoned cook in the kitchen, and an avid fan of the multitude of eateries throughout Waikiki, Honolulu, and beyond.
