Originally from Texas I've lived in the Northeast, the West Coast of the United States, and Hawaii. I'm an avid explorer and after obtaining a Design/Photography/Cultural Anthropology degree I traveled the globe connecting with people and cultures through teaching, photography and volunteerism.
Having visited six of the eight Hawaiian islands over the past 20 years I settled on O'ahu. Our island has incredible scenic locations ranging from dramatic vistas, isolated beaches, lush valleys and mountains.
I volunteer with Malama Na Honu, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the Hawaiian green sea turtles through education, public awareness and conservation in the Spirit of Aloha. On tour I love to show people our threatened sea turtle basking on the beach.
What I love most about leading tours is sharing my passion for Hawaii's history, culture and geology while connecting with people from all over the world.
Mahalo for your interest.
A Recent Review of this guide
Wonderful Day in Honolulu. We had a lovely day with Marie. We contacted Marie from the cruise ship after meeting another couple who wanted to join us for the Arizona tour. Throughout the day she was flexible and cheerful, handling delays due to loading my wheelchair cheerfully. She is knowledgeable, flexible, and has a nice sense of humor. We felt like we were traveling with a friend. Although she gave us considerable information we never felt lectured. We highly recommend Marie.
