Aloha! Ikaika is a Husband, Father, Aviator, and Band Dad. His family is his purpose in life. He has been flying for almost 20 years and loves the view from above the clouds. Although his travels sometimes takes him out of town, he chose the role of Charms coordinator because he could still be effective from a distance, and is always happy to help whenever he's needed. GO BGPR!
