Nadine Kam

Hey, I’m Nadine, a longtime journalist who put in time at USA Today, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and its successor, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

I started my career covering politics, and while I was good at it, it did no good for my soul. It made me feel anxious, helpless and fed up with the incompetence I saw every day. These are the people leading us?

So, I was lured to the wonderful world of features and the enlightening power of food, art, fashion and lifestyles that seemed to inspire people way more than politics.

At any rate, there’s enough bad news in the world so I wanted to create this oasis of enjoyment, which makes perfect sense on an island playground.

Welcome to paradise.
