Aloha and e komo mai (welcome, come in)! I’m a big believer that life is what you make of it, to include living aloha wherever you may be. That’s what I’m trying to do by sharing our most useful stuff with you. You only get one life here, let’s make it the best we can!
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.”Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
The majority of content is going to be Hawai’i-related and recipes we enjoy, but you might find a bit of everything.
My name is Geoffrey and this is my personal site for everything that’s not code-related. Besides being a husband and father (and big kid), I’m also a volunteer firefighter, an Electronics Technician in the United States Navy Reserve – and our unit’s Leading Petty Officer (LPO), a hobbyist code developer, runner, and have a day job working in IT. There is never enough time in the day.
We may not be doing the exact same things, but I bet you don’t have enough time either. My goal is to maximize productivity so our family can spend more time having fun.
I became fascinated with Hawai’i when I was 13 years old and my grandparents took our family with them for their 50th wedding anniversary. We visited the Big Island, O’ahu, and Maui. To me, the Big Island no ka ‘oi, meaning the Big Island is the best! My wife and I have actively talked about moving there someday. The first coffee I ever had was Kona coffee and that’s been my go-to drink ever since.

The site itself is a work in progress and will officially launch on King Kamehameha I Day, June 11, 2018. Some of the content will be moved over from two old sites I have, one a site dedicated to Hawai’i that I built back around 2000 and another site dedicated to household tips that hadn’t been updated in a few years. I’ll be adjusting things as I go to see what works and what doesn’t.
