Greetings from Portland, Oregon

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Iā€™m Elayna, a visual journalist, digital producer and hula hooper exploring stories about diverse cultures, communities, unique relationships and social issues.

My passion for learning about and working with people from different backgrounds has led me to pursue educational and professional opportunities around the world ā€“ from Tanzania to Turkey to Haiti to Bolivia. I love working with organizations and individuals to share meaningful stories that strengthen communities, build empathy and inspire change.

I am available for assignments and collaborations in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
