I'm a long-time resident of Hawaii, moving here in 1962. After working in local government, I was the owner of a Honolulu-based advertising agency for 20 years, specializing in creating media and strategy for numerous political campaigns. I'm now retired, but do some freelance writing, much of which is about train travel.
