About Me

Since Jul 2003

Lives in Hilo, Hawaii


Iʻve lived on the Island of Hawaiʻi for going on eleven years. Iʻve lived in South and North Kohala, in Hilo district, and briefly in Kapoho. I started volunteering in the forum in 2006, as a way of giving back for trip advice Iʻd gotten that year -- and I became hooked. I love helping out on the forums. I do have a life though, and my time for TA is not unlimited, so I do not do travel advice by PM. I get requests almost every day that I have to refuse. Please do not PM me with travel questions, as it makes me feel like you think I am a free travel agent. Please do start a topic in the forum with your questions, and I will most likely reply! About me: I love islands, travel, different cultures, photography, plants, cats, and I need to be near the ocean to be happy.
