Loves: how human-centered design has the power to develop creative solutions to climate change that consider how human behavior will drive their success or failure; a vigorous round of “Yes, and..” improv; a downwind run from Makai Pier to Kaimana Beach on her one-woman canoe.

Hates: Pepper-jack cheese; our dependency on fossil fuels; talk with no walk. 

Proud of:  Her kindergarten level ability to write and speak ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi; the work by her team on their Masters project in the Design Impact Program - which directly led to the incorporation of Shake Energy Collaborative!

Working on getting better at: asking for 100% of what she wants; meal prep; acknowledging her own biases and privilege.

Ikaika Hussey
Project Development Manager

Loves: Community empowerment, economic democracy, and a just transition. The mizithra cheese and browned-butter pasta from the Spaghetti Factory. Backyard jam sessions with friends. Traveling with my family. Star Trek! 

Hates: Climate inaction, colonial mentalities, and folks who feel climate despair but won’t take collective action. We need more cooperatives and less paper straws.

Proud of: Decades of community organizing work in these islands.

Working on getting better at: Eating less pasta!

Keaʻa Davis
Design Strategist

Loves: Poke, video games, using co-design practices to amplify the voices of marginalized communities.

Hates: Cilantro, exclusive design practices. 

Proud of: The work Shake Energy Collaborative does.

Working on getting better at: Staying connected with my culture through learning about family history, language, etc.
