I have lived on the Big Island for over20 years and maintain residences on both sides of the island. I'm a former hotel executive but a private business owner now. I know the island very well. I'm a straight-shooter, you like my answers or not. I hate unlicensed and unregistered "fly-by-night" businesses. I also hate all the pretending to-be experts who have been to the Big Island maybe once or twice and pretend they know everything about it. I support DINK (Double Income No Kids) and prefer finer things in life. If you have a private question feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy your vacation!
