CEO & Creator of "DaKind Signing Puppets" at Marianne of Waikiki LLC

About Me

I am Marianne L. Ambrose (Marianne of Waikiki), ™ a creative sign-language entertainer and artist who uses puppetry and American Sign Language to entertain hearing-impaired audiences. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in communication disorders and audiology at Central Michigan University. I then enrolled in the Interpreters' Training Program at Lansing Community College. For five years I was a case manager for deaf and mentally ill adults, while proceeding to give lessons in sign language.

I seek to promote global kindness, while raising the level of environmental
consciousness and disability awareness. My innovative mission is to inspire generations through motion pictures, animation, application, education and games, as well as tactile product engagement of " Da Kind Signing Puppets," creatively expressed by "Marianne of Waikiki. ™" I seek to give children and adults compassionate, entertaining, educated information about American Sign Language for the deaf and hard of hearing community. I want to spread the word about the environment and global kindness in general.

I have developed a unique genre of sign language - my musical puppet theatre - in which I use Folkmanis puppets. My " Rabbit Acts of Kindness - No Bully Brah!" show brings the important message of non-violence, non-bullying and acceptance to the youth of Hawaii.

I have also dealt with the challenge of my own hearing loss, which resulted from a car accident. I have since recovered, and I am more passionate than ever about bringing "Acts of Kindness - a Divine Message" of PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS & THANKS to the world at large.

My " Underwater Acts of Kindness" project raises awareness about cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It is a cause which is very close to me (literally): I live on a sailboat in the Hawaiian Islands..

I have been a sign language interpreter for decades: I donate my services to the
Unity Church of Hawaii and to Mr.Scott (a deaf healer) and his Pomeranian service dog, "Woofy."

I am also a Reiki Master, Angel Intuitive, Metaphysican and practitioner of Divine Light Transmission, through the teachings of Sukyo Mahikari.
