ʻUlu Ambassador: Christopher Kamalu Fujimoto

Christopher Kamalu Fujimoto

Christopher Kamalu Fujimoto was born and raised on the island of O'ahu. In 2021 he graduated from Kapiʻiolani Community College with an associate’s degree in Culinary and Pastry Arts and a certificate in the Advanced Professional Program, and is now enrolled in their sustainability certification program.

Chris wants to learn as much in Hawai’i as he can about how to create a sustainable food industry and environment that our local community can thrive off of. “I have always had a deep love for my home,” Chris said. “As a Native Hawaiian and chef, being able to work with our native ingredients has always been a goal for me. To be able to shine the light on our beautiful indigenous products we have flourishing here is always on my mind as well as finding new ways to showcase them in our modern culinary scene while still respecting the tradition and history behind them. Hawai'i is everything to me and I want to do everything I can to give back and honor this place I call home.”
