I recently joined the team at Seasons of La Jolla magazine as a freelance contributor. James Tully and Matthew Lyons publish the quarterly glossy. My first piece appears in the Winter 2014 edition entitled “Seven Caves in the Cliffs” and uncovers the history of La Jolla’s famous sea caves. What I enjoyed most about writing the piece was talking with historian and author Carol Olten of the La Jolla Historical Society–and of course–doing my research on site at the beach.
Academic writing is usually a mess of jargon that confuses and excludes readers. As I progress through my Master of Science Education program at UC San Diego, I attempt to write my academic papers with the same clarity as my freelance magazine articles.
Do I pull it off?
You be the judge. Here is the link to the paper:

But the inspiration—and the winning ingredient—was a simple squeeze of lime. The acid made the flavors of the dish really pop, earning chef James Harris from Orange County the top award at last year’s I Love Poke festival in San Diego. The festival returns this year to a sell out crowd savoring only sustainably-harvested fish….more in Hana Hou!
