About me

On a daily basis, each of us encounters opportunities to make Hawaii a better place. We also inherit a legacy in the forms of the environment, the culture, and the economy that make our lives possible. I'm working on improving my part of the legacy that gets passed along.

Sustainability, the impact of globalization on Hawaii, how Hawaii's environment links to local economics, Hawaiian history, local art, documentary filmmaking, educational innovations, new forms of community service, schools finding ways to contribute to the community.
