About Tony

On his resume, Tony describes himself as a “good-natured outdoor type.” Amen to that. No one is as easy going, gracious, and gentlemanly as Tony. Living on Maui since 1981 has instilled him with the aloha spirit, and his studies of the Islands have given him a profound sense of Hawai‘is history, culture, and natural world. He hikes, bikes, snorkels, dives, and kayaks, and needs an outdoor job to continue pursuing his passion for nature. “I also wanted to be associated with the most reputable company on the island,” he says.

In addition, Tony has a full-time indoor job—fine dining waiter for the evening shift at one of Upcountry’s best restaurants. He has been involved in restaurant work since 1979 and, as a result, is a very good cook. Tony claims to make the best banana bread on the island. We’re here to tell you it’s true.

Guest Quote: We went on a tour with Tony during our honeymoon. It was a fun, easy hike, and Tony was an excellent guide. He went above and beyond to ensure that everyone had a good time while learning about Hawai‘i’s agriculture. We took a lot of photographs, saw some beautiful sights, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were very impressed with Tony’s knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm. Thanks for the great experience, Tony!
