Welcome to my site!
A career diving revenue for evidence-based journalism and producing live events has seen many career highlights, starting at The New York TImes, shifting to London with Institutional Investor, and creating record revenue for The Nation. My entrepreneurial consult assignments have been in many verticals; socially responsible companies and investors, travel, nonprofits, fashion, entertainment, cannabis, and more.
In my spare time I garden, serve on nonprofit boards and help our town's Green Team reach silver certification.

"Ellen's work ethic, creativity and willingness to contribute to all areas of business at The Nation were consistently dynamic and, during the time we worked together she more than doubled advertising revenue, oversaw a circulation marketing campaign that featured some of our celebrity supporters and assisted with fundraising.
She has developed many ongoing relationships with clients, created new ad categories to counter losses in endemic areas, such as publishing, and developed digital media platform performance to balance the diminishing print advertising market for news media."

I have a slight but friendly connection to Win McCormack and when the chance presents itself I'll gladly put in a good word for you and your formidable talents as a collector of ad revenue.
