A Master Graduate of The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences, Kelli has been a music engineer on at least a half-dozen Hoku award-winning albums. Inspired by the artistry of Hawaiian culture and music, Kelli is lending her experience and passion to fill the void left by Hawai’i’s painful cuts in the arts and music.  Kelli is no stranger to overcoming the odds-- she is shrinking the void for women as a successful engineer in a traditionally male occupied career. Women make up a meager 5% of music producers and engineers industry wide.
