Brief excerpt from interview: Living your daily life in a certain place, in Hawaiʻi, there are certain cultural and social influences that are a part of everyday life here that I think sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously I bring into my assessment of whatever it is that I'm doing. I'd be more curious to see if I were to study this elsewhere, would that follow me there or would I start to think of things more in the local influences - what's important to them? What's important to people here in Hawaiʻi is not necessarily the same priorities elsewhere.
