Who are you?

EJ Eats | Erin JacksonI’m Erin Jackson, hence the “EJ”, though some people call me “Jackson” or “Jax”. I’m a writer, I’m obsessed with food, and I love taking photos. Since moving to San Diego, I’ve done a ton of food writing for Serious Eats, a James Beard award-winning national food blog with 20 million unique visitors a month. I currently serve as city editor for Dining Out San Diego and am a contributor to several web and print publications, including Thrillist, San Diego Magazine, and Edible San Diego (among others). Burgers are a major passion. I’ve reviewed well over 250 burgers for Serious Eats, everywhere from Toronto (my hometown!) to Tijuana.

I live to eat. A truly great dish can send bolts of electricity down my legs and give me goosebumps, and more than once, a dark chocolate dessert has made my back teeth tingle. Food is an emotional (and sometimes serious) subject, but I don’t consider myself a critic. My main motivation is simple: to share all of my delicious new discoveries.

You sound awesome, let’s be friends.

I’m always happy to hear from readers. If you’re interested in reaching me, head over to my contact page.
