Dig deep, get a bit personal
I have a long first name, Kattiya, with an official nickname from my parents, Duke. Among friends and family, Duke has evolved into The Duke, Ducks, or Duckie. The Duke seems to entertain them and me the most.
I am based in Hawaii, I love the beach, walking, easy hiking, yoga, traveling, and food. But no I don't surf. I only did SUP yoga once, and I am in if you want me to join you.
