Kapono R. Kobylanski was born in Honolulu, HI, and he grew up in Waipahu, HI. He is a mixed plate, and is made up of 10 different ethnicities including Hawaiian, Polish, Filipino, Irish, Scottish, Portuguese, Chinese, English, American Indian, and Spanish.  Kapono was fortunate to attend 8 public schools all over the island from K-10th grade, and then he went to and graduated from Kamehameha Schools in 2001. He got a full scholarship to attend the University of La Verne (ULV) in Southern California, where he received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree with a Concentration in Finance and a Speech Communication minor. Kapono graduated in the top 7% of his class receiving Magna Cum Laude and Departmental Honors status. 

He started his Finance career working for numerous big-named companies, and then he became the Financial Analyst at First American Title Company for six years.  On the side, Kapono pursued a modeling and acting career for a few years, and the pinnacle of that venture was winning the title of the 6th annual Mr. Philippines USA’09 competition.  

While juggling a part-time and full-time career, he went back to ULV where he got a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a Concentration in Accounting. Kapono loves travelling, and he was able to travel across the United States and around the world.

His mom & family were featured on A&E’s hit show, Intervention (An EmmyAward-winning American television series), as the first family to be from Oahu, HI on the show.  Kapono was a pivotal person for getting his family on the show, and they strategically overcame the odds that were stacked against them (1 out of 4.83 million chance of making the show per year). 


After living in Southern California for about 11 years, he returned home to Oahu, HI to be near his family and friends back in June 2013. He became the Accounting Manager for Kalihi-Palama Health Center.  Kapono then bought a condo in Makiki (Honolulu, HI) with his wife, and he is a proud step-father with a healthy baby boy coming too.
