About Jordan Akiyama
A voice for the voiceless.
Born and raised on the island of Oʻahu, I enlisted in the Coast Guard and received my public affairs training at the Defense Information School at Fort Meade, Maryland. My active duty career took me up and down the West Coast where I gained experience in photography, videography, news and story writing, media engagement, and crisis communications. After leaving active duty, I returned to school to receive my degree in Communication Studies from San Francisco State University. Joining the Service brought me back home where I now share the amazing work our biologists contribute towards the conservation of our endangered species.
