Portola Pilot

Akshay Raj


Akshay Raj is your co-editor-in-chief of the Portola Pilot this year. In his final year as Portola Pilot staff, he is beyond excited to help bring the paper to new heights. While he’s not working on journalism, you can find him (virtually) hanging out with friends, playing tennis, messing with tech, and constantly losing track of time.
