Joey hails from Opihihale and is proud alumni of Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy. Joey’s career in landscape development and installation, landscape and turf maintenance, and golf course management spans nearly three decades.  Most recently, Joey was integral in organically developing the Sperber Companies of the Hawaiian Islands Region after assisting with the renovation and re-opening of the Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection in 2020 and overseeing maintenance of the property. At ‘Ōuli Farms, Joey will institute agricultural best practices and oversee all aspects of the project’s crops and farming, landscape installation, and maintenance. He is eager to be a part of restoration efforts of the native dryland forest flora and fauna, and to provide food that’s “grown here not flown here.”
