He owned and operated a real estate company in San Diego, California that developed housing and condominium projects as well as residential sales. In Hawaii, he owned and operated Paliuli Home Inspection for three years providing detailed analysis of foundation, framing, plumbing, electrical and landscaping impacts for future home owners prior to going to work for the County of Hawaii.
