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 English and Writing at high school and college levels here on O’ahu while I continue to advance as a writer and humanities scholar.
