From an early age, Tini experienced the entertainment business firsthand from his father, Jerome, a well-renowned performer and composer from the South Pacific. Tini later developed his knowledge of the industry while working in Hawaii in recording, distribution, radio advertising, and concert promotions. At the same time, he performed as a musician and MC with one of the top Polynesian reviews in Waikiki. He also performed with other bands, one of which opened for Lou Rawls with the Honolulu Symphony. In 2006, Tini moved to Southern California to continue his education in music and songwriting. Today, he strives to continue the legacy his father has passed on to him by using his experience and talent with Isle Entertainment, while working as a solo recording artist.
