God, I love my island. Some people might take issue with the possessive “my island” but not only have I made Guam my home for the last six years, I’ve invested in the community through my secular work, volunteer service, and friendships. I’ve made it my life’s work to promote Guam because I have been…
It’s no secret that I like to “escape” as often as possible (maybe because my day job involves a computer and I am so over being tied to a desk for more than an hour at a time). Last week a friend invited me to hike to Pagat Caves, a freshwater pool hidden deep in the jungle….
Back in March, I gave you a sneak peak at the Guam film I worked on with Brandon Li. We’ve just launched the film as the trailer to a documentary I am producing for The Guam Culture Guide.
