Born on the island of Oahu and a graduate of the University of Hawaii, Manoa, with a degree in journalism, Furukawa has worked in journalism for 25 years in various editorial positions for daily, weekly and monthly publications. Furukawa still lives on Oahu in the community of Pearl City, located about 15 miles from Honolulu.
