Aloha. My name is Duke (like the University or as in John Wayne).

I am from las islas lo más belleza en el mundo—de Hawai'i :-)
I was born on the island of Oahu, Hawai'i... we use an apostrophe after the first 'i'—it's called an okina and operates as a gluttal stop (or pause) and as you might know our 'w' sounds like the deutch 'W' or V de vaca. So as a local (Kamaʻāina) we say "ha-VAI-e" [english].

I currently live in the Washington, DC area and travel to México and España each year at the beginning of the year and towards the summer and Fall.

Me and my friends have a non-profit called the Global Language Network (URL HIDDEN) and we teach languages—familiar and non-global—in the Washington area. Most of our students and volunteers are professionals at the State Department, World Bank and local embassies and we operate on the campuses of The George Washington University, American University and have an alliance with the New York University's Constance Milstein and Family Global Academic Center.

I work in Health Policy at the Lewin Group in the business development and graphic arts 'department'. I'm excited to travel and learn from others. As you might imagine I have come along way from the days of island living 3977.28 km or 2471.37 miles from the coast of California.

Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa
Be 3-D... because Dreams Determine Destiny :-)
