Nellie McKesson

Nellie McKesson likes solving problems. Based in Portland, Oregon, she currently spends her days trying to find technological or workflow solutions for the publishing industry, combining her past experience in print and digital book production and design with her knowledge of digital workflows and programming. She has meandered through various roles in the publishing industry, starting out in journal publishing, then tackling tech publishing and authoring platforms at O’Reilly Media (where she pioneered an HMTL/CSS-centric workflow), rethinking trade publishing tools and workflows at Macmillan, and now running a startup called Hederis where she’s building a Web- and AI-based platform for book publishing. Nellie went to school for philosophy, and plays the drums in an artsy metal band.
