About

I am the anthropologist-geographer at Chaminade University of Honolulu, in the Behavioral Sciences Program.  I teach in the undergraduate program at CUH.  My current research interests are the symbolic use of space in Second Life (virtual world) and the impacts of digital realities in ethnic identity.  Current projects include: movement of the archaeological sites from the Ditu Wenwu Shaanxi [the Archaeological Atlas of Shaanxi Province PRC] into Google Earth; moving place names, archaeological and historic sites into Google Earth for the state of Hawaii; and the development of a MOOC platform for minority-driven universities.

If you’re so inclined, I’ve included a link to a folder with my dissertation on ‘Contested Images of Place in a Multicultural Context’ if you are interested in my interpretation of symbolic landscapes in East Maui.
