Currently I am disseminating research results on the migration experience of Pacific Islanders to the U.S. for the Environmental Law Institute. I have advised political leaders on legislation concerning water, land, and ocean resources for the state of Hawaii and provided insight and organization for public health studies in the developing world, the Center for Social Research and Development in Vietnam, a cultural NGO in rural China focusing on oral history, and the United Nations Cartographic Section.

I enjoy experiencing significant places of culture, history, and adventure; explicating poetry; and learning the French language. And all ocean sports: scuba, snorkel, surfing, swimming.
