My name is Michael Van Liew but most of my friends call me Mikey. I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and lived there for 29 years until I decided it was time to pack up my belongings and move to Maui, Hawaii. I had visited once and immediately knew there was something magical about these islands. Some of the freshest land in the world, this is the most isolated chain of islands out there. Surrounded by beauty and the home of everything that is outdoors and fun, Maui is the perfect fit for someone like myself. If you have ever dreamed of living in Hawaii or just visiting and making the most out of your time, please enjoy reading this blog and feel free to email me any questions, suggestions or comments if you like. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on twitter @MauiMikeyV. Mahalo Brah.
