Karl: I grew up on the east side of Kauai. Being a part of a big family means our parents had lots of babysitters.
Karl: My first job at 15 was working for my Grandma at her retail shop in the Coconut Marketplace. I don’t think I’ve ever “Wanted” to work in customer service, but coming out of high school I was given the opportunity to advance my career from working at Taco Bell Kapaa to Kauai Medical Clinic’s business office. Working in the business office I had no contact with customers which over time got boring for me. Since then I’ve only been in customer service jobs, which has allowed me to meet so many different people. It’s given me opportunities that I’ve never imagined that I’d ever have.
Karl: During my free time I love to sleep. We can thank my sister for that. I also enjoy hanging with my friends, but it depends on how exhausted I am from work.
Karl: Kaua’i Cup 2019???? What is that?
Karl: Haha, working out was me trying to get healthy and fit. It’s very time consuming, but rewarding in the end when you feel good about yourself. As for a favorite machine, I really can’t think of one, but I feel like leg days are the easiest for me because that’s where I have been able to increase in weight the easiest.
Karl: HA.HA.HA….the secret to knowing so many people is old age. lol
Karl: Australia, Thailand and Japan are few of my top destinations to travel to if I could handle the plane rides. Long flights aren’t my thing and it seems to get worse as I get older.
Karl: One thing that I’ve always thought of doing, if I could build the courage to do, is go skydiving.
Karl: My role model would have to be my Grandma Elsie. She has been the one that has taught me how to be the hard worker that I am today. Seeing how she has been so successful with her business’ made me want to be as successful as she has been. I’m still trying to achieve that, but I’m not as “Pake” as she is.
Karl: I’m not one to actually write down a goal and make a list of ways on how I want to achieve it. I like to think about it and if it happens it happens. My mind will do as it pleases and you just can’t get in the way of that. Ask Tianne, she knows. lol
But all in all the only real goal I have in life is to try and become the best version of myself. It will take my lifetime to do, but I’m down for that challenge.
