Aloha! I’m an independent writer and editor based on the island of Maui.

I cover travel, science, culture, and food for publications including Smithsonian.com, BBC Travel,  Spirituality & Health, Hana Hou! (the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine), and Honolulu Magazine.

The SPJ Hawaii Chapter named me a finalist for BEST INDEPENDENT JOURNALIST in 2015. During my eight years as Associate / Dining Editor for Maui Nō Ka ‘Oi magazine, the publication received multiple honors, including a 2011 Maggie for BEST REGIONAL & STATE MAGAZINE.

My book credits include: Frommer’s Hawai’i 2015-2016, Top Maui Restaurants 2012, Fodor’s Maui 2005-2009 and Fodor’s Hawai‘i 2002-2009.
