Change parquet schema creator metadata element

In Kite SDK or maybe even parquet-mr (not sure if there is a forum here for that), is there a way to change the "creator" metadata tag of a parquet file.  


When Hive creates the Parquet file, it will generate the Parquet file with the following "creator" metadata element/tag:


creator:            parquet-mr version 1.5.0-cdh5.8.3 (build ${buildNumber})


We would like to change this metadata tag to be a differnet value or appended with additional information.  Is there a way to do that?
