Malayna Dawn was born and raised in Los Angeles on the outskirts of Hollywood. Her entrepreneurial Sri Lankan father and creative American mother instilled a passion for fusing the best from East and West in all that she does.
As a child, her make-up artist grandmother invited a friend to her school play, which launched her into a professional children's singing group - recording and performing live with, and for, celebrities. Though she earned a music scholarship for college, she became fascinated with the study of the entertainment industry and graduated with a degree in Communications.
Working behind-the-scenes in advertising, print, radio, TV & film, whether assisting, singing, announcing or writing, gave her further insight into conveying the meaning of a message and telling a good story well.
After moving to Sri Lanka in 2000, she fused East & West even more, bringing her surreal life & work experience to all of her projects, which were as widely varied as her interests!
Now back in Los Angeles since 2012, she works as a Communications and Digital Media Consultant for clients and partners, and follows wherever inspiration leads her!
