Since 1997 I have been the faculty advisor to Ka Leo O Hawai`i, the daily student newspaper for the Manoa campus, Hawai`i Review, the literary journal; and Ka Lamakua, a website of creativity. I also formerly served as advisor to KTUH, the student-managed, 3,000-watt FM station (90.3-Honolulu, 91.3-North Shore, and 89.9-Windward O`ahu) that is licensed to the UH Board of Regents.
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).
I left the newspaper to write Na Mamo: Hawaiian People Today (`Ai Pohaku Press), which won Hawai`i Book of the Year. Excellence in Hawaiian Culture and Excellence in Non-Fiction Writing honors in 1997. I also served as Communications Officer for the Honolulu City Council (1992-1994).
