About Me!

I Love Maui!


Yes, I am a fanatic about Maui, Hawaii and I love the polynesian island. This site lets me share the island with you and hope that you enjoy my photography, suggestions and favorite beaches and restaurants.


Our Businesses! I started with my son a Tour Guide GPS rental business on Maui called GyPSy Guide Hawaii in February, 2010, and later added Skip's Beach Shack. We also rented underwater digital cameras, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, ice chests and coolers.


We sold the business on September 1, 2011 and started our entry into the food business on Maui in Lahaina Town.


In early December, 2011 we opened Lahaina Fudge Company, which is located at 819 Front Street in the historic Lahaina Town on the west side of Maui. We're situated in the Old Poi Factory courtyard on the ocean-side of Front Street. We sold the business in September, 2013. It is now called Hawaii Fudge Company.


I now have also opened a distribution company offering salt water taffy Big Wave Taffy and roasted macadamia nuts, along with coconut candy and other products.





I Love The Hawaiian Islands.

I came to the islands nine years ago from the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area, after a successful career in technology sales. I lived on Oahu for 1 1/2 years, and then moved to Maui to work in a software start-up. I also managed Ritz Camera in Whaler's Village and Lighthaus Camera in Lahaina Town for 3 years.


All of the pictures on this web site were taken by me with a Canon G-Series digital camera, and I continue my love of capturing the beauty of Maui through photography.


I also love Southeast Asia! Over the years, I've been blessed to travel to Southeast Asia and have come to love that part of the world. I have several travel web sites for those interested in seeing that part of the planet, and I focus a lot of my attention on the incredible country of Thailand.


If you have any questions about Maui or Southeast Asia, please send me a message.



I hope to hear from you soon!
