I studied Journalism at Cal State University Monterey Bay, and during this time served as the Editor in Chief of the Otter Realm (now the Lutrinae). While the articles are only available in the PDF of past issues, I am very proud of the work I did with the Otter Realm and have thus linked it here. I also wrote an article or two for classes, including “The Rock and The Hard Place.”
I had the privilege of editing the Otter Realm in the 2016-2017 academic year at Cal State Monterey Bay. It was a wonderful paper to work for, with a fantastic team and advisor. The Lutrinae is carrying on that opportunity for students, so pease support them in any way you can!
