Christian grew up the Big Island of Hawaii in the small town of Holualoa, best known for its coffee farms and old time plantation feel. Growing up, his father ran a small used camera store in Kona town specializing in Hasselblad and Leica film cameras. As soon as school was out, his father would pick him up from school with the surf boards on the rack, and head to “Pine Trees” their favorite local surf spot, surfing until dark. This ritual continued until Christian relocated to Colorado to pursue his education, where his mother has practiced Real Estate for over 25 years.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in Communication from the University of Colorado in 2005. Shortly after graduation, he accepted an offer from his Father to open his own Camera store. He relocated back to Maui to help build two locations in Kihei and Lahaina. He managed and operated these shops for over 10 years, creating strong ties with the local community and professional photographers.
After purchasing his own home, Christian saw a small window of what real estate on Maui had to offer, and was instantly hooked. He has over 10 years experience in sales and customer service with the Maui community and has an extensive group of colleagues, friends, and clients.
Christian understands our unique Hawaii economy, and values the importance of loyalty and honesty in both business and personal relationships. These values stem from his family, small town roots, and his extensive education in communication.
