I have lived on the beautiful Kona coast on the Big Island of Hawaii for over twenty-five years. For twenty years I lived on a coffee farm in rural Honaunau on the lush slopes of Mauna Loa and produced delicious, world class Kona coffee. I have worked as an educator both in the USA and abroad and love to travel and meet new people from different cultures. I am co-owner of an import business in Kailua-Kona which features furniture, handicrafts, and decorator items from my travels to China, India, Bali, Thailand, and other parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. For the past five years I have lived near the ocean by Magic Sands Beach. I have loved the ocean and water sports since I was a small child.
