As a director, a lot of the beautiful food porn and footage you see me post is the result of a collaboration with my very talented crew. This video is no different and perfectly sums up my week spent working from Hawaii. From early morning sunrises to late night edits, my buddy @charliechalkin went all out to make these videos great. Hope you guys enjoy the final video from my @gohawaii experience! @kauaidiscovery #GoHawaii #LetHawaiiHappen #VisitKauai #KauaiDiscovery #Ad 💿MUSIC - “Ocean to City” by the High Highs
