Digital Dining Managing Editor
Digital dining managing editor is the longest title Mari Taketa has ever held. A 20-year veteran of traditional journalism who in a past life traded her job as editor of Hawai‘i Business for nonprofit adoption work in Ho Chi Minh City, she regards her current food writing and editing as a step toward nirvana. Mari runs Frolic Hawai‘i, HONOLULU Magazine’s digital food blog, which after a career that started at McKinley High School’s Daily Pinion and took in journalism degrees at Northwestern and Columbia universities and jobs at The Associated Press’ Tokyo bureau and Hawai‘i Business, gives her a professional excuse to indulge her food passions. She is also excited by travel and beginning to learn new languages.
