I think my wife and I were destined to be “islanders” the day we decided to honeymoon on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie and we got our first taste of “island time.” Actually, we wanted to hit up the roller coaster capital of the world in Sandusky, Ohio, but then someone told us about Kelleys […]

Meet my wife, Danielle,
and our beautiful boys.

(it's what the cool kids do)

This blog is written by a tired father of two little boys who spends more time than he would like wandering the house saying things like, "Leave my socks alone!" But when he's coherent he writes about pizza, life in Maui, and his exciting career as a wedding and portrait photographer...

*sigh* Here's the thing...

Non-athletic. That’s me. But I’m tall and trim so I can fool most anybody into thinking I know how to use my body. The truth is if I didn’t have hands to catch myself I’d have no face from all the tripping and falling I’ve done over the years. My nose would be flat. Just […]

I haven’t lived in an apartment in almost twenty years. My earliest childhood memories take place almost exclusively in Unit F, a small two bedroom apartment in Lyndon Center, VT. There were five other units in the building, and while growing up I experienced a range of colorful people moving through them. As a kid […]

The trip from being a dumb tourist who needs a GPS to find the ocean on an island to a full-time Hawaiian resident is both a long and a short fall. In one sense all you have to do is make the decision to move there and—BOOM, you’re a resident. On the other hand, Hawaii […]

There is no such thing as a perfect paradise on Earth, but Maui comes pretty darn close. Warm ocean waters teeming with beautiful sea life. Breathtaking views from all over the island. Food so good you’ll think you’re dreaming. And enough zip-lining, boat-riding, parasailing, surfing, swimming, hiking, and sun-tanning to occupy adventurists of any age. […]

Packing up your bags and moving 4,900 miles away from home takes three things: bravery, motivation, and a little bit of craziness. My wife and I fell in love with Maui when we visited for a ten day vacation in January 2015. As soon as we stepped off the plane it felt like we had come […]

When we got to Maui we bought the grooviest car—a 2012 Ford Fiesta. Color? Lime green. It’s the perfect island car. It’s compact (which is great because most of the public parking on Maui is extremely narrow), and it gets great gas mileage. But whenever you buy a new car you have to go to […]

My wife and I made a parody rap video in 2013 that landed us on national TV! We got an all-expenses paid trip to New York City and a spot on Katie Couric's daytime talk show where we won $594. The video at right is a short excerpt of our appearance on Katie's show.
