His mom, a natural born singer, dad an amazing musician, and his 3 older brothers were all in the school band. So, it was only fate that he would end up playing music.

In 2010 he recorded his first album "Book of Clichés" with his good friend Josh Yafuso and it was amazing. After playing music around Hawaii for some time, he went on to become the Kollaboration star of 2012, an Asian American talent competition that he won. He got a chance to play live on the red carpet at the ASIAN MUSIC AWARDS in Hong Kong. It was one of the most exciting times of his life. he then traveled back to Hawaii and won Hawaii stars 2013.
From then he started playing regular gigs. During the time from when he released his first album to 2014, he lost his father to ALS. It was a rough time for his family. After he passed, it took him a while to come to terms with it and even start writing music again. He moved to LA for a year with his fiancé and friend, and he ended up finding out who he was and who he wanted to be. Mike came back to Hawaii and took out all his emotions in the studio with his friends Jim Hurdle, Jeremy Erickson, and Josh Hemakana. Thus, he came out with "Reincarnation". This album is about his journey these past few years and what he's been through as a person and an artist.
