About Ernest Abrams
- It's the Internet way.
- The challenge to keep the site free is accomplished through sophisticated automation routines allowing the site to be robust with minimal expense. Ernest used tools provided to his business clients (who demand high functionality with minimal costs) to give back to his community through FirstFridayHawaii.com.
Ernest Abrams, a resident of Hawaii for over 20 years is an artist in a different way and considers firstfridayhawaii.com the canvas he can practice his passion. Ernest Abrams is a business/marketing/computer consultant along with being a software engineer/developer, webmaster and programmer.
