About Me

I write. I sing. I play. I work. And now…. I mom! (Not necessarily in that order.)

Sara-InstaHeadShot-BWAloha! I’m Sara, and happily living up at 3,000 feet, high up on a volcano (Maui’s Haleakala), where I work from home running a few companies: Noni FIlms (media production),The Iris Agency (marketing, social media & communications), and Plant a Wish (a nonprofit project promoting and doing native habitat restoration).

I’m also a lecturer teaching marketing, business, and management classes at the University of Hawai‘i Maui College. I’m the proud new mama of a bouncing baby boy (#HenryKoa) and the happy wife of a zipline adventure tour guide.

About the name “spectekula”:
One day, sometime in the late 90s, on a video set at the good ol’ MTV Networks building in Santa Monica, my art director called me “Spectekula” – a twist on my full legal name, Sara Tekula. It had a ring to it. Soon after, my gal pal/soul sister C.C. Skye made me a nameplate necklace with the “spectekula” name. Next thing you know, it was my email username. Then, my Twitter handle…and so on…
