Kyle Ellison_Headshot BrighterIn 2007, when a community paper published my first travel piece on hiking and camping on Kauai, I couldn’t have imagined the future adventures this wild career would hold. Now, over 300 articles and countless experiences later, I’ve had work published in The Travel Channel, AFAR, The San Francisco ChronicleTravel + Leisure, Escape, WHERE, Maui No Ka ‘Oi, Journey, Ka’anapali Magazine, Viator, Gadling, AOL Travel, and a host of other publications.

In 2014, I authored the 9th edition of the Moon guidebook to Maui, Moloka’i, and Lana’i, with the revised 10th edition being published in 2016. Other large projects include a complete Maui destination guide for Travel + Leisure, and a Local Expert position for for Hawaii, Cambodia, Fiji, and New Zealand—both South Island and North Island.
