Greetings from Portland, Oregon

I’m Elayna, a digital producer and multimedia storyteller who works with diverse organizations and individuals to share meaningful stories that bring brands to life, shine light on social issues and strengthen communities.

My curiosity about people and cultures has led to more than two decades of in-depth travel and project work – from Tanzania to Turkey to Haiti to Bolivia. Through these experiences, I’ve sharpened my listening, interviewing and observation skills, to connect with all kinds of people, from rural dairy farmers in Kenya to senior banking executives in the U.S.

I am available for writing, photography and multimedia assignments or collaborations in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
