Aloha! My name is Chris and I currently live in Hawaii with my wife and two sons.  I grew up in Hawaii my whole life and after returning from college on the Mainland, I started a YouTube channel, Hello From Hawaii, about life in Hawaii in 2019.  It's not all rainbows, beaches, and acai bowls.  The beauty of Hawaii is also shadowed by some harsh realities that include a high cost of living, homelessness, and environmental issues.  

Through my videos, I hope to share some insights about life in Hawaii from someone who grew up here, lives here, and plans on living here for the rest of my life with my family.  So whether you're thinking about visiting Hawaii or moving here, I hope the topics I talk about are helpful and useful.
