Born and raised in Wailuku, Maui, Royce went away to the University of San Francisco to live his dream of playing Division I baseball and graduated with a B.A. in Business Administration. While living in San Francisco he knew in his heart that Maui is where he wanted to be. Prior to the Blue Zones Project, Royce worked at HawaiiUSA FCU then Hawaii National Bank as the AVP & Loan Officer for the past 10 years. Although this has been a career change, his passion has always been to give back to the community that has given me so much to him throughout his life. The Blue Zones Project has given him an opportunity to do so by transforming Central Maui to become a healthier place to live, work, and play for future generations to come. In Royce’s free time, he enjoys a round of golf with family and friends and keeps active in several league sports. After a long day, he also enjoys having a glass of wine, talking story while cooking dinner with his fiancé.
