1.    Tell me a little about your Personality
I am one that puts his family first, and believes that when coming to work you need to be early and you don’t leave until the job is done.

2. How did you get started in the business?
I was looking for a new job and answered an ad with Pleasant Hawaiian Holidays in the Air Space Control department.  Who would have guessed that 30 years later I would still be here and had the opportunity to learn all that I have?
