Stan was born and raised on the infamous North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Growing up next to the
waters edge he quickly felt an attachment to the ocean and became at home in the big surf of Hawaii. He was a surfer and body bodyboarder as far back as he can remember and started competing at the age of 15 and turned professional in the sport of body boarding at the age of 18. Music and photography were also two big dreams growing up. Taking photography classes in high school one hour then learning guitar technique the next he was driven to succeed. As faith would have it, his band National Product received an offer they could not refuse. With the big buzz they were having on the islands he shifted gears from his home in Hawaii and moved with the group to southern California in 2000 where they lived out a very successful career as a professional touring band. The band later in 2010 closed the books and for Stan that was a huge opening to reacquaint himself with his love of the ocean. This time equipped with a camera. Stan now travels up and down the gold coast of California and back home to Hawaii making up for lost time capturing those timeless moments to share with all.
