Kai was introduced to carpentry by his older brother on the Big Island in Hawaii where he spent years learning construction which inspired his current interest in woodworking. These skills are highly prized at Mache, where he runs the production team and works with our design team prototyping new products. He is very meticulous, with a strong eye for quality, and is constantly seeking to improve operations in production. He gets joy from working with his hands and delving deep into his creative reservoir of ideas. Making products by hand that result in improving one’s mental, physical, and spiritual health is a dream come true for Kai! He grew up in a spiritual and health conscious home and found his current passions influenced and shaped at an early age towards practices of personal health and growth. Kai is stalwart in prepping weekly healthy meals and maintaining a regular work out schedule to honor his body temple and shares his focus on wellness with others.
