I’m Pomaika’i. Born & Raised on Hawaiian Homes land in Pana’ewa, Hawai’i by my beautiful hawaiian, german Mother Nalani Tripp and handsome Filipino Portuguese Hawaiian Father Lloyd Longakit. When I’m not On Air, I enjoy hanging out with my family, watching movies, journaling, listening to music, shopping and simply enjoying life. Besides being a Mom with all the Mommy duties, I’m also a singer, song-writer (PomaiMusic.com) and a Worship Leader at New Hope Hilo Hawaii where I serve as Worship Choir Director and, along with my Husband, we are facilitators for a Divorce Care Program. My favorite color is yellow. My favorite food is hawaiian food. My favorite artist(s) are Darlene Zschech & Kari Jobe. I’m blessed to work with Amazing individuals every day. Radio has broadened my knowledge on the music industry and given me an opportunity to develop personal relationships which I’m absolutely grateful for.
