I am a 30 year resident of Maui, almost 27 years in the 13th District. Lived in Lahaina for a year and a half, a few months in Kula, almost 8 years in Ha'iku, and for the past 18 1/2 years, I have owned a small, 3 bedroom home on 2 1/2 secluded acres just past Twin Falls in Huelo, on the Makai side of the Hana Highway. To the right you can see my education and community involvement on Maui. Besides having an M.A. in Public Law and Urban Affairs from The American University in Washington, D.C., I worked as a teacher in both the public school system with the DOE, plus I was the mathematics teacher at the Maui site of the Hawai'i Job Corps. I have served on a few Board of Directors and two Maui County Commissions. In addition, for over nine years, I was the Producer and Host of Maui Talks-TV, on Akaku: Maui Community Television. It was the longest continually-running, 90 minute Live public affairs call-in talk show on Akaku and I was awarded numerous awards during its run.
I was also the co-chair of the Green Party of Hawai'i (GPH) and have served not only as an officer of the GPH, but also as a delegate to various national conventions and currently am on the National Committee of the GPUS. For the four years prior to arriving on Maui in 1986, having visited Maui for a brief time in 1978, I lived at the largest alternative community in the United States. I was also admitted to law school while completing my Master's degree; however, I spent the next few years traveling around the world, having visited fifty countries on five continents, plus all fifty states of the United States, finally settling on Maui.
