I've been a designer for 33 years and as Production Director for Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd, (1996-2020), I created, developed and managed all facets of the production department. I was responsible for producing every order, stock print and display piece. In other words, my hands have been on every print you see in the galleries and nearly every print we produced since 1996. I co-wrote, designed and developed all promotional and advertising materials. I’ve created custom presentations for hotel projects and destination groups. I provided assistance with sales, marketing and merchandising strategies. I also assisted several local artists form their commercial identities and market their work. I took on wide-format printing technology and the advances that came with the trade, to help shape the company become the most successful giclée gallery on Maui. https://www.rarebookhub.com/articles/2552/print?page_id=4607 The challenges that were brought about last year by the Covid pandemic, prompted me to end my career with Lahaina Printsellers and put my decades of design, printing and art business experience together to create my own online gallery, Maui Visions. www.mauiartprints.com This side project is a work in progress and I’m expanding my gallery collections and services every day. I'm a very visual person and always try to incorporate nature into anything I create. I was drawn to design, photography, drafting as well as architecture at a young age and my interests were refined and developed at Madison College in Wisconsin. I initially studied business, however it was clear that commercial art was my true calling. Maui’s abundance of natural wonders inspired me to pursue my photography interests and market my work as fine art prints. My family has now taken to photography and we love to explore and shoot while we play. My wife Chiori grew up in Japan and studied language as well as theater. She was fortunate enough to travel the world with Seiji Ozawa as an integral member of his world renowned opera productions. Her work as a translator and super-title technician, has been featured throughout the planet in some of the finest opera halls. Opera will always be her passion, but she's now employed at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua as the head yoga instructor. My son Kai is a solid athlete and is naturally drawn to sports, but he always finds ways to surprise me in some form of artistry or design. If you love your work, good energy and karma is reflected in your work.
