Howard Hughes Corporation’s senior vice president of development is building community with Honolulu neighborhood Ward Village.
Continuing to focus on innovation to bring the best of island living to Ward Village, including heading a team to develop the community’s Central Plaza, transforming a former industrial site into acres of open green space that will serve as a community gathering place
“My father has been building homes in new neighborhoods throughout the islands for decades. That influence impressed upon me how careful design can improve the way people live, bring communities together and elevate the everyday. At Ward Village, we have built an incredible team, united in the vision of building a better community and focused on ways to embrace the rich history, culture and diversity that make this one of the greatest places to live in the world. Hawai‘i has given me everything good in my life. Most weekends, you’ll find me in the water, surfing with my wife and son. Since his birth, I experience time differently. The father in me is always looking to be present and absorb every second of his childhood. The developer in me is always looking to the future to see how we can make the world he’ll grow up in a better place.”
