About the Author:

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

    Ahh, reading the current article on “Humility in the Hawaiian Culture” awakens my soul and transports me back to the islands. It’s a humble reminder of my precious time spent in Hawaiian Paradise, and how mankind would be better served, embracing these forgotten attritubets, gifts, and… ALOHA! MAHALO!!!
