Living lightly on the land, eating locally, and practicing traditional skills are passions of mine and my writing has taken a turn in that direction. Currently, I’m spending a lot of time on my own project, Attainable Sustainable. Eventually a book will come of it.

I’m a northern California native, but since 2005 I’ve been lucky enough to call Hawai‘i home. Luckier still? I can write about Hawai‘i from Hawai‘i. From under a palm tree if I please.

I’ve written about these islands as well as other travel destinations, covering food, music, and culture for print publications like Islands, the Hawaiian Airlines in-flight, Hana Hou!, ATA Sights, and the Christian Science Monitor, as well as a variety of online sources. You can see a sampling of those clips here.

I’ve worked on several guidebooks about Hawai‘i, contributed a chapter to another about NASCAR racetracks (no, really), and compiled a regional guide about the Sacramento area for HGTV’s FrontDoor.com.

Coming over? Call me. We’ll have coffee.
