Aloha Kakou Palamanui!

Have recently bid farewell to beautiful Kona and Hawai’i Island.

Linda, Sam and I are finally back down to one household in Waikiki just a few doors away from Mom. I have since been able to study full time and complete my MA in English and Creative Writing.

I took advantage of the family and personal imperatives which led to stepping down as Director of Palamanui with an aim to re-calibrate professionally and return to teaching full time. I also seized the opportunity as a break to complete my MA and restart my creative writing career after so many years, and am now seeking opportunities to teach while I work in off hours on my first book within the MFA Creative Nonfiction program at Goucher College.
