Based out of Honolulu, Hawaii, Wrenn Okada is a photographer, designer, artist and educator with an audacious approach to his craft.  Born and raised on the island of O'ahu, Wrenn continued on his journey to explore the intricacies of contemporary aesthetics while studying Design and Fine Art at the University of San Francisco.  While living in San Francisco for seven years, he immersed himself in the city's creative spirit and thrived in an environment fabricated from the freedom of artistic expression and innovation.

Wrenn primarily specializes in photography (portrait, concert, event and commercial), graphic design, photo editing and manipulation, digital marketing, branding, social change and educating the next generation of artists and creators through his photography program, Hawaii PhotoVentures and his LEGO Engineering programs run through Play-Well TEKnologies.  His work is heavily influenced by the ocean, urban art, 90's cartoons, Japanese culture and adventure.  Wrenn's imaginative approach to art and design provides him with a platform to visualize a message of positive change and revolution on a massive scale for the inhabitants of Hawaii and beyond.  

He has personally collaborated with some of the biggest music artists and recognizable brands around the globe but also has had a hand in creating and developing small businesses' brand identities from scratch.  

In his free time Wrenn enjoys bodysurfing, freediving, photography, traveling, hanging out with his pets, exploring nature and discovering new food and music.
