Matthew Bailey - Blogger | Editor | Project Manager
Resident wordsmith, Matthew “Zeke” Bailey has lived in Hilo since 2005. Although born and raised in Texas, he has come to claim Hawai’i as his home. He came to Hawai’i on an exchange program from the University of North Texas and within months decided that this is where he was supposed to be. Having graduated from the University of Hawai’i at Hilo with a degree in Linguistics, he has studied many languages and was specifically focused on Hawaiian language and its future.

In his spare time he likes to study Hawaiian and Greek mythology as well as the European monarchy system. Matthew can also be seen playing ‘ukulele while singing Hawaiian, country and pop songs at various open mic nights around Hilo and occasionally at the beach.
