What I do at Hoku House


I write, edit, design, and indie publish my own books. I edit and design books by clients, and sometimes I might publish their books under Hoku House. I prefer teaching client authors how to professionally publish independently. 


I write and edit news for print and online newspapers and magazines. Beats include politics, education, health, media, society, and ecology. I advocate freedom of the press and media literacy for critical thinking.


I help nonprofits, social entrepreneurs and Bcorps create ethical public communication plans and internal communication systems that make global sense. I support democratic teamwork for organizational transformation.
