“That guy wants to sleep with Robert Pattinson.” – Conan O’Brien / Feb 14, 2012
Although many music fans know him from his work with the bands Go Jimmy Go, Pimpbot and No Villains Left, he is also easily recognized as the host of Almost Local on OC16. After entertaining radio listeners for over a decade, fans continue to hear him at Aloha Stadium every fall as the voice of the University of Hawai’i “Rainbow Warrior” Marching Band. He can also be heard every week on Fernando’s Walk of Shame podcast.
As a pundit in social media, he doesn’t just share news – he creates it. Due to his powerful online presence he was brought on as a blogger for wellbeinghi.com – HMSA’s health and wellness blog.
In giving back to his community, he volunteers his time to hold the multimedia seat on the City and County of Honolulu Commission on Culture and the Arts. He also leads 808 Green Thumbs, one of Hawaii’s largest gardening groups.
