Contributing Editor

Honolulu-based Shane Nelson wrote his first story for Travel Weekly in 2006 and became a contributing editor in 2009. Since then he’s not only covered the Aloha State tourism industry and edited the weekly Hawaii eNewsletter but also traveled frequently on assignment to Oceania and Asia, where he’s written for Travel Weekly about bathing elephants in Thailand, bungee jumping in New Zealand and swimming with 30-foot whale sharks off the west coast of Australia.

When he’s not working on Hawaii deadlines for Travel Weekly, or finishing international pieces for sister publication TravelAge West, Nelson can be found on his surfboard at his favorite break in Waikiki.
