Phillip S. Roberts

Our man in Hawai‘i, Phillip Roberts, has been documenting the island lifestyle since 1993. Radio air personality, photographer, tour guide and writer, he is a jack of all trades. Phillip writes about things to do in Hawaii. His first “Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs” a contemporary, landscape-styled book that offers a pictorial documentation of the past and present of tiki (and related art forms) throughout Waikiki as well as Hawaii's island of Oahu. He contributes to Innov8, the Go Airlines in-flight magazine. Well-traveled in the South Pacific, Phillip has visited far-flung locales such as New Zealand, Rapa Nui, (Easter Island) and Tahiti and the entire Hawai‘ian island chain. The Mai-tai is the perfect drink in his humble opinion.
