Meet Jeff and Rob, the Beat of Hawaii authors
More About Rob
My ancestors came to Kauai in the 1850’s. I, however, returned to Hawaii via Washington, Oregon and Pennsylvania. For nearly twenty years, Hawaii has been my full-time home. It’s a natural fit for me because I love the ocean and the culture of the islands; a perfect place for a Pisces guy!
World travel has been in my blood since I was a child, and I still remember my first trip to Europe as though it were yesterday. My passion for travel continues to grow, and I have lists of upcoming trips.
I fell into travel writing quite by accident on a trip to Australia many years ago. It provided a way to stay in touch with, and send photos to, friends and family on a more real-time basis.
Beat of Hawaii, is a great melding place for my writing, passion for travel, and love of Hawaii. And here is something else about me, I am also a Kauai Rabbi!
More About Jeff
A serial entrepreneur and renaissance-type by nature, I’ve worked in marketing and technology for over 30 years. I headed an international business practice for many years, with consulting clients in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. I managed travel (and expenses) for a large group of globe-trotters, and trained corporate travel agents to meet our needs. Today I am CEO of an international marketing firm specializing in professional vacation rental management.
I moved to Hawaii full-time decades ago, after having spent a great deal of time here since 1970. I still love to travel and to offer travel help and recommendations to visitors and locals alike. I am well known for following the Hawaii travel industry closely. When I’m not working, writing, coffee roasting, long distance ocean swimming, outrigger canoeing, yoga and edible gardening are among my many varied interests.
