The Holoholo podcast was created to start a conversation with women + men from Hawaii about how their experience growing up in paradise influences their creative endeavors today. Being from Hawaii ourselves, we know how special it is to call our little island paradise home and how sometimes your career/passion in life pushes you to move to the mainland to fully pursue your dreams.
We want to stay connected with these leaders who are making an impact on their communities away from the islands and see how their local perspective influences the work they do today.
