Introduction Bonjour, grüezi, hi, aloha.

I'm Bill Harby, owner of Imagery Ink and Kipuka Cottage. I'm a writer, editor, photographer and publishing consultant who, in 2010, left my long-time home in Hawai'i to join my bride in Switzerland.

ExpatCH is my collection in words and photos of adventures big and small in Switzerland, Europe and beyond.

I've written articles for and contributed photos to numerous Hawai‘i, Swiss, national and international magazines, newspapers and websites. I also serve clients with public relations materials, web consulting, film scripts and other communications projects. You can see samples at

My Swiss chérie and I are also the proprietors of Kipuka Cottage on Hawai'i Island ("the Big Island"). It's a charming forest nest (if we do say so ourselves) just outside of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Visit us at

I always love hearing from readers, so don't be shy if you have comments or questions about Switzerland or Hawai'i or the expat life.
Interests Writing, photography, exploring, diving, hiking, camping, Switzerland, European culture, Hawaiian culture, French language, wine, helicopters, aviation, social media.
