Hereʻs 5 reasons NOT to apply to join our team:


1) You dislike working with genuine, humble, amazing people

2) You find flex scheduling, remote work options, and not dressing up for work appalling

3) You are appalled at the notion of both working with youth AND behind the scenes support for those who do

4) Ditto with creating and/or supporting story telling through music and video, as mediums to perpetuate and evolve Hawaiian culture, and impact our youth & local + online communities

5) Getting paid to be at school-wide concerts, music video film shoots and jam sessions with Hawaiiʻs favorite artists and hammahz, sounds nailz.
