Since 1997 I have been the faculty advisor to Ka Leo O Hawai`i, the three-times-a-week student newspaper for the Manoa campus, and Hawai`i Review, the literary journal. I also formerly served as advisor to KTUH, the student-managed, 3,000-watt FM station (90.3-Honolulu, 91.1-North Shore, and 89.9-Windward O`ahu) that is licensed to the UH Board of Regents. As a member of the Hawaii Publishers Association, I coordinate the annual Hawaii High School Journalism Awards in the spring and Journalism Day training in the fall for state high school students.

I came to the University after 20 years in journalism and communications; first as a summer intern for Honolulu's afternoon newspaper (Honolulu Star-Bulletin. 1977 and 1979), then as a general assignment reporter for Honolulu's morning newspaper (The Honolulu Advertiser, 1980-1988). Those papers merged in 2010 to form the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

I left the newspaper to write Na Mamo: Hawaiian People Today (`Ai Pohaku Press), which won Hawai`i Book of the Year and Excellence in Hawaiian Culture honors in 1997. I also served as Communications Officer for the Honolulu City Council (1992-1994). Since joining the University, Ka Leo and KTUH and their staffs have won national and state honors for their work, including consecutive Pa`i Awards for College Newspaper Excellence.

The College Media Association selected me for the Reid H. Montgomery Distinguished Service Award in 2012, and in 2013 I was awarded a Fulbright Scholar award to teach journalism in Viet Nam for the 2013-2014 academic year.
