Aloha Fellow Photographers and Friends

Together with my colleagues at the Professional Photographers of Hawaii (PPH), I wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

I'm grateful for the support and honored to have the opportunity to serve as President of this dutiful organization. In order to get the most out of PPH membership, it is important to attend programs and events regularly and to get involved. I will hold true to the mission of the organization, and I look forward to hearing from the membership and seeing you all at future programs.
