Workshop: Sign Language as an Art Form

Landon was born on O’ahu and raised on the mission field where his parents Paul & Doreen served with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). At the age of 11, he was introduced to sign language as a way to perform through the arts. At the age of 16, Landon began choreographing songs and dramas for his parent’s ministry to take to various countries. Through this art form, it has been a way to communicate through the language barrier and share the message of our Father.

He has been blessed with his gifting in the arts and using it in the entertainment business since 2001 being apart in various roles from performing on stage to coordinating events. He has managed two seasons of Hawaii Stars, Mrs. Hawaii pageant, assisted with major concerts in Waikiki and coordinates the only national qualifying karaoke competition in the state of Hawai’i. Landon also serves as a mentor to young adults and youth throughout the state.
