After my husband and I sailed up from French Polynesia to Hawaii, we sailed around the Hawaiian Islands for a few months then settled into Ala Wai Yacht Harbor where the famous Ala Moana Bowls surf break was our backyard. We took The Bus to work in downtown Honolulu every day and returned home to the boat to surf under the fireworks at Waikiki.

We both worked at a small publishing firm that did some advertising for Nissan and Infiniti in Hawaii along with some other local businesses. They were also creating a start up publication which my husband ended up designing from scratch including the masthead. I was staff photographer for the fashion spreads. I also wrote this article which included my photography from our visit to the Tuamotus.
