ELLIE SHOJA, is an award-winning writer, film and television producer, and podcast host.

As a person with a violent and unconventional childhood who lived on three continents and spoke five languages before the age of 15, Ellie’s personal story is a riveting tale of perseverance in the face of adversity. From Turkey to Germany to Iran to the United States, the stabilizing through-line in her life has always been her love of story. Her innate understanding of storytelling and fascination with the human condition are at the root of Ellie's love for bringing unique stories to life.

When Ellie is not writing and producing, she co-hosts the Web Series MD Podcast on iTunes, creates meditation courses for the 20/20 Meditate for Peace Movement, and paints murals.
