As we approach spring, all of this busy-ness of work, social life, getting fit for summer, purging and cleaning, and just trying to stay balanced might take its toll on us. Road-rage incidents in the news or planetary alignment freak-outs could be a result of the compounding stress. I know winter to spring for meREAD MORE

Thawing Out After SnowGlobe Music Festival

January 10th, 2017

All images courtsey SnowGlobe Music Festival “Whataboutahit?” “Whataboutahit? Of your love…” We could hear the piano intro to Hayden James’s “Something About You” with the familiar twist that ODESZA put on their version.

Destination Snow Globe

December 25th, 2016

The weather in Honolulu has been so cold lately but I’m loving it. This is the weather I grew up with in Washington state. Layering clothing, having to wear socks, it’s bringing me back to my roots as Honolulu city dips to the low 60’s here and there. I remember fondly one Christmas I wasREAD MORE

Q&A with Overmind

September 15th, 2016

It’s rare that something really catches my eye on Instagram. Restructuring the feed and doing away with showing posts in real time was what killed the enjoyment of scrolling for me.

I’m falling head over heels for the new generation.

After hearing so much from people I respect in the industry, I made aREAD MORE

Culinary Cocktail Collaboration

March 2nd, 2016

Something told me it might not be a good idea to pursue a Q&A with famed chef Chris Kajioka and multi-award winning bartender Justin Park about their upcoming event March 26th at Park’s new Bar Leather Apron. I’ve been to that new place, and it’s very small. While it’s clearly one of the greatest cocktailREAD MORE

Sex Still Sells

March 2nd, 2016

Just when I am healthy enough to start scrolling through social media I’m immediately turned off. This has got to be the craziest presidential race yet. Like it or not it’s political season. Are you registered to vote? It’s ok if you are not, it’s not too late! Just mail in this form and doREAD MORE
