About the Author
Kyle Ellison began researching the island of Maui when he first moved there at the tender age of five. Back then, the island still had three sugar mills, Wailea didn't exist, and early mornings were punctuated by the sound of bombs falling on Kaho'olawe. The island has changed considerably since then, but Kyle's love of Maui has remained.
A Maui resident, surfer, and diver, Kyle has led groups of divers as a divemaster at Molokini, led scuba tours on the island of Lana'i, hosted hundreds of hikers on Maui, and proposed to his wife off the island of Moloka'i while diving with hammerhead sharks. Kyle's son can usually be found splashing in the water at Baldwin Beach.
As a freelance writer, Kyle's work has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Travel + Leisure, Maui No Ka 'Oi, Ka'anapali Magazine, AOL Travel, Escape, Journey Viator, Gadling, Afar, and the Huffington Post, and on the Travel Channel. His travels have taken him to 65 countries and 49 U.S. states. He also helped found a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships for students in Cambodia.
