Hawai'i - the land of aloha and crystal blue waters, infused with jasmine and gardenia, abundant with passionfruit and mangos, graced with the wonder and wisdom of many cultures. I feel so blessed to call this place my home.
I have lived in the islands since 1984 - producing educational videos while exploring the Pacific Rim and beyond. My work has taken me to Japan, China, Korea, Samoa and the Philippines. My adventures have taken me around the world!
Travel has been a defining factor in my life. I love exploring new places and new cultures. I am delighted to offer my services as a travel guide or a travel adviser. Let me focus on the details so you can relax and enjoy the scenery. Whether it’s an afternoon boat ride to the Na Pali shore or a 3-week journey to China, I have the knowledge and experience that will create an adventure of a lifetime for you - with ease, joy and inspiration.
My current adventure is to travel and live as a professional housesitter. Last year I cared for pets in private homes in Italy, France, Corfu, Bali, Singapore and New Zealand. Along the way I explored Switzerland, Paris, Athens and Egypt. This year I am sitting on the West Coast, upstate New York and North Carolina. If you or someone you know needs a reliable and loving housesitter, send me the dates and location and we can see if it works with my calendar.
In my travels I have visited temples, museums and antique stores to learn more about Kwan Yin, the “female buddha”. The Kwan Yin Collection is a resource for those wanting a personal connection to this icon of compassion and wisdom.
My spiritual path led me to become ordained as a minister with the Universal Life Church. I love planning, performing and photographing weddings and celebrations of life.
As a media specialist for Maui College, I produced educational videos, wrote grants, developed a digital media training program and became a “MAC” geek. I currently design websites and am available to produce and direct projects and events.
