I live with my mom, Deb Brigley, and my best friend, Aaron Holmes, on our one acre flower farm in Haiku Maui.
My sister Katrice also lives right down the road.
We have 9 chickens and two dogs, Hunter (my dog) and Zipper (my mom's dog). We have a very productive property with 5 avocados, 3 mangos, 1 starfruit, 1 lime, 1 breadfruit, 1 jaboticaba and some sornum cherry trees as well as a vegetable garden and a lot of tropical flowers.
