Christina Baird, owner of Little Wing Connections Public Relations and Marketing, SluggerHost Web Hosting, Founder of Sudara blu clothing and author of How Far Will I Run, A Memoir. One Summer night, Christina attended a festival. As she was leaving, she noticed a row of food vendors lined up and serving the hungry crowd as they were dragging themselves home. The aroma coming from the food was intoxicating all in itself. The patrons who were there couldn’t get enough. This is when her entrepreneurial wheels started turning and wouldn’t stop. Christina had tasted Moana’s amazing food before, so he was the first person to come to her mind in duplicating what she just witnessed. A few months later, Holy Mo’s was born!

Moana Liva aka “MO” is mild mannered young Samoan man who loves to cook. Born In Hawai’i, Moana migrated to California in 1989 at the age of 12. Long Beach was the city that Moana called home throughout his junior high school and all of his high school years. After graduating from Long Beach Polytechnic, Moana then attended college at Chapman University and majored in Business Administration.
Fast forward to when Moana found his love for cooking. Started out with the barbeque grill on Sundays for football. Loving the smell of grilling meat and watching his favorite team, Moana took his love of food to the next level. Moana starting a catering company called L&M Foods of Aloha. A couple of catering gigs and minimal help kept the business from thriving for Moana. That didn’t stop Moana from finding another way to keep the flame of his dream alive. Moana wanted to not only keep his catering business alive, but be able to open a mobile food truck.
When Moana met Christina, it wasn’t about food. The love for technology brought them together. However, Moana had cooked for Christina at her home, and immediately fell in love with his cooking.
Moana and Christina got together and created what Holy Mo’s is today.
