Hi there! My name is Janelle and I'm a creative writer and storyteller based in Portland, OR. I have a BA in English from UC Berkeley and write about a whole lot of things but focus on food, travel and incredible people. You can catch my work in publications like Thrillist, VICE and Eater, with my portfolio available at https://lassalleworks.com/writings. I'm also working on writing my first screenplay, so expect to see my name on the silver screen sometime soon ;)
