Welina me ke aloha, Hau'oli Makahiki Hou 2015, and welcome indeed to my personal website.

As Chief Exectuve Officer of the Space Foundation, I've got the best job in the world . . . one that allows me to do quite a bit of travel and public speaking.  Whether I'm at a school or a convention, at home or abroad, I've found that people have different ideas about what kind of information they'd like to have about me.  I try to keep this website current as a "one stop shop." I hope you'll find what you're looking for here, and if you don't, 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!




PPS -- I'm also lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful woman in the world.  Here is Cynthia Pulham's web site:

If all you know about the Space Foundation is what you see during the annual Space Symposium, you've certainly seen us at our best -- but you've also only seen the tip of the iceberg.  Looking back at just the past three weeks, I'm in awe of our team -- which continues to "punch above...
