Christi Young

Editorial Director

Christi Young was an hour late to her job interview at HONOLULU Magazine. One-way roads in Downtown Honolulu still stymie the Central O‘ahu kid. Still, the high-heel addict got the job writing the daily fashion blog, then HONOLULU’s marketing manager, HONOLULU Family editor and her current role as editorial director of all of HONOLULU’s brands. A proud graduate of Mililani High School, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and Northwestern University, Christi spent her first 10 years in journalism producing TV newscasts in West Virginia and KGMB in Honolulu, then as executive producer of Hawai‘i News Now. She’s a fan of 1940s and ’50s musicals, bargain hunting and her two young daughters who now edit anything they read (including this bio).
