Understanding Client’s Needs
As a Baby Boomer, with a family of his own, and an aging Senior parent of over 95-years old, he can personally relate to the wants, needs and desires of his own generation, parent’s generation, and even his child’s generation, whether they be X or Y’ers or even Millenials.
He was born on Long Island, NY in the town of Manhasset, 1958. His father was born and raised in Hawaii and his mother in California, they both met and had his 2 sisters and himself after they had settled in New York City.
During WWII his father served as a Lieutenant in the famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team in Italy and France. His mother was put in the Japanese American Internment Camps and was “released” after the war, migrated East and ended up in Manhattan.
Hawaii is Home
Upon arriving in Honolulu in the Summer of ’68, his cousins took him bodysurfing in Waikiki and he was hooked! He progressed quickly to bodyboarding, paddle surfing and later stand-up paddle surfing. He also branched out into SCUBA diving, sailing and fishing during this time. Tracy also spent 2 ½ years sailing across the Pacific in the late 70’s & early 80’s on a 58’ ketch; sailed from New Zealand to the Cook Islands, Marqueses, Tahiti, back to Hawaii, within the Hawaiian Islands, Marshall Islands, Truk Islands, Guam and back to Hawaii via a great circle route… something I will never forget!
