Writer and editor in Hawaii

Martha Cheng is based in Honolulu. Her writing appears in publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Food and Wine, Eater, Monocle, and Conde Nast Traveler. In past lives, she ran a grilled cheese truck, cooked in restaurants, worked as a Google techie, and tried to teach computers as a Peace Corps volunteer (but ended up answering a lot of questions about karate). She has degrees in Computer Science and English from Wellesley College. More than a decade ago, she came to Honolulu for a boy and stayed for the people and ocean. She was born in San Francisco, but really prefers surfing in Hawaii.
