Welina me ke aloha, a very warm welcome indeed to this immodest necessity of the digital age -- my personal website.

As Chief Exectuve Officer of the Space Foundation, I'm called upon to do quite a bit of public speaking, media appearances, and the like.  Whether I'm speaking at a school or a convention, at home or abroad, everyone has a slightly different idea of what kind of information they'd like.  I try to keep this website current as a "one stop shop" for the news media, event planners, speaker coordinators, old friends, colleagues, classmates and acquaintances. I hope you'll find what you're looking for here, and if you don't find what you're looking for, just ask.

Me ka ha'aha'a,


Elliot Holokauahi Pulham




PS -- I'm also on Facebook, and of course at the Space Foundation website.  See you in Cyberspace!

Another Great Year in Space!

If anything has been amplified to a painful level this year, it is the consequence of political dysfunction, and how the failures to govern by Congress, the Administration and both political parties have negatively affected the United States, both at home and abroad. No sector of society...
