A part-Hawaiian from Arizona, Kendall comes to the entertainment business via the unlikely route of politics. As an assistant to an Arizona State Senator, she learned the value of politics and history in shaping the everyday circumstances we all face. Later, a quick ascent in less than a year from server to general manager of a popular downtown Phoenix restaurant gave her a knack for thinking quickly on her feet and a thirst for solving challenging problems. Today as a producer, having made the jump to LA to pursue her passion for film, she continues to strive for excellence developing multiple projects with the production company Superfreako Productions, as well as her own Kulia I Ka Nu’u, a company that focuses on Polynesian stories and characters and historically-based fact and fiction. She has many projects currently in development including Tagi Sina, a feature film about a Polynesian boxer forced to choose between fame and family and Last Of Our Kind, a documentary that examines the face and future of Hawaiian identity.
