What is your background?
A longtime interest in arts and literature have kept me involved in Hilo's artistic community. Before I retired, being a chef was a means of expressing my own creative instincts. I've also participated in HI Art Magazine by curating a poetry column.
What motivates you to be on the board of EHCC?
I've always found EHCC and its programs and activities over the years vital to our East Hawai’i community. I was a member of the EHCC Board a number of years ago, and was delighted to rejoin in 2018. As a lover of the written word, I am glad I can offer editorial oversight for our communications and I’m hoping we’ll do more with poetry and HI Art magazine in the coming years.
