Aloha, I am Jacoby. I live in Honolulu, HI.

I am a learner first and a teacher second. I am interested in game-based learning. This year, I am returning to school for a Master’s in Curriculum Studies. In the program, I am single-mindedly focused on increasing the articles created on the ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi Wikipedia as I believe having a robust encyclopedia will greatly contribute to the health of the language and the lāhui.

I enjoy synthesis and music composition. Even after years of playing instruments, I still feel that I am a beginner at bass, guitar, and piano, but I am learning more all the time. My current music project is an attempt at ’80s Mbaqanga. More on that to come.

Why do your photos look like that?

I use BitCam. I am not a very good photographer, and I never keep up with the latest technology. I couldn’t take a better photo than a professional who has been to the same place, so why not take something a little different, at least?
