About me

I was born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. After spending 10 years teaching outdoor and science education in different parts of the country I spent three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Philippines before coming back home. I currently live in Kailua with my boy friend and my pup I brought home with me from the Philippines, Fernando.
