About Philip Waikoloa
Philip Waikoloa is a five star (Midwest Book Review) novelist, a graphic designer and publisher who also dabbles in music (with band The Julian Day) and photography. He studied Comparative Literature at UC-Santa Cruz and his lifelong passion for words led him to write poetry, short stories, two novellas and journalistic pieces which have found readership in various forms of publication.
He considers the high point of his writing career to be when he interviewed the musician Jack Johnson for Blue Edge magazine as it fused three of his favorite interests, music, surfing, and writing.
