“Hi, howzit, aloha, 宜しくお願いします (yoroshiku onegaishimasu)  I’m a yonsei (fourth generation Nikkei) born and raised in Hilo, Hawai‘i. As a photographer and videographer, I am fortunate to have received a few awards and have had work published and broadcasted nation-wide, but I cannot take all of the credit. There is a Japanese saying, お陰様で (okagesama de), which roughly translates to, “I am what I am because of you” – it is an expression of appreciation which recognizes all of the efforts that have been made by others that have brought you to where you are today. I consider every image or video project that I create to be the sum product of the inspiration and lessons I’ve learned being raised in one of the most beautiful communities in the world and surrounded by some of the most talented artists of our time.
My wife, Danielle, and I are proud parents to our identical twin boys, Cade and Kash. I am also the son of my amazing parents, Lance and June Niimi, and brother of my older sister, Kristen Moura. These are the most important and inspirational people in my life so I had to give them a little shout out here.
