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 love wildlife and especially turtles so 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.
