Christopher R Kelsey

I was born in Carmel, California. I came to Hawai'i when the tallest building in town was the Aloha Tower. I was a wedding singer and baritone soloist at the Central Union Church. I believe in finding ways to help students. In the words of the character Lone Watie from the film The Outlaw Josie Wales, "Endeavor to persevere."
