Maria joins Frolic and HONOLULU Magazine as Digital Dining Editor. Her first job was making shave ice for sun-baked beachgoers at Island Snow in Kailua and she’s been chasing fun, food-centric experiences ever since. In Honolulu’s dining and nightlife scene she’s been a competitive mixologist, nightclub manager, cooking instructor, events director and even financial advisor. After years of living in the Bay Area and Barcelona, Maria returned home to complete her degree in Spanish at UH Mānoa. She loves live music and can often be found dancing, usually with food in hand.
