General manager, Tony Roma’s Hawaii.

Where were you born and raised?


What got you interested in the food and beverage industry?

My brother was working at Tony Roma’s in Guam, so I was aware of the work he did and a couple of times I filled in for him when he went on vacation. I liked the work and got noticed fairly quickly.

You’ve worked both sides of the business, in the kitchen and the front of the house. Which do you prefer?

Actually I like them both. I like having the flexibility to go between the kitchen and the front of house - and it helps to know all aspects of the business.

Do you cook at home?

I used to when I lived in Guam, but since coming to Hawaii I’ve been too busy working!

What’s always in your fridge?

Finadene. It’s a traditional sauce used in Guam made from soy sauce, lemons, vinegar, onions and hot peppers. We’re slowly introducing it to Hawaii through our restaurants. It’s fabulous. Once you taste it you want to eat it with everything, especially rice.

With whom would you most like to have dinner?

Tony Roma. He passed away a few years ago, but I would love to have had one dinner with him.

Where should I eat if I go to Guam?

Our sister restaurant, Capricosa. It’s the most popular and most famous restaurant in Guam.
