About Me

Hi. Thanks for visiting my web site. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Hawaii-based writer with an eclectic set of interests. Currently, I’m a senior writer with Hawaii Business Magazine, where I cover the major issues facing the state, including the shifting role of government, new paradigms in energy and the environment, and problems facing the nonprofit community. Mostly, though, I try to explain how things work.

Over the years, I’ve also been one of Hawaii’s most prolific freelance writers. My work has appeared in almost all of Hawaii’s glossy magazines, as well as national publications like Islands Magazine, TravelAge West and Travel+Leisure. I’ve written about everything from business and economic affairs, to science and technology, to travel and culture, to anything to having to do with Hawaii history or the waterfront.

This web site is meant to serve as a portfolio for my work. I’m gradually digging through magazine archives, retrieving some of my old stories and moving them here. For a man with a day job, it’s slow-going. You’ll notice, for example, under the rubric “Magazines”, there are still no stories posted for Islands Magazine, Travel+Leisure, Ka Elele or the dearly departed Spirit of Aloha. All in due time, all in due time.

    Craig Chapman must under no circumstances remain on Hawaii State land @ Malaekahana State Rec. Area, nor any member of his family. He should not even be in Hawaii unless in prison. Much damage has been done and the critics have only touched the surface. A lot of lives have been damaged by Chapman. Guests are anything but safe.

    I intend to spend whatever time is necessary to rectify the situation at Malaekahana St. Rec. Area.

    Please contact me.

  2. Mr. Hollier,

    My comment below is in reference to this article: http://blogs.hawaiibusiness.com/2012/03/22/employers-big-business-vs-small-business/

    Can you provide data on job creation by small versus big business and include how many jobs were outsourced to other countries between the two? In this article you compare revenue between 27.6 million firms with fewer than 500 employees to 975 companies with more than 10,000 employees citing that the bigger business generated more revenue but what is the total number of employees for each and how many of those jobs are being outsourced to other countries?

    In my opinion, keeping America and Americans working is not only a cornerstone but also the heartbeat of our great nation. Small businesses and big businesses working together will only strengthen America’s foundation and allow us to compete globally.

  3. It appears you know a good deal about this particular subject and it shows throughout this specific posting, called

  4. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
