I'm a senior acquisitions editor at Chronicle Books, one of the most respected independent publishers in the U.S. Since joining Chronicle's editorial team in 2005 I have collaborated with artists and authors to develop hundreds of illustrated books and gift products, many of which started off as a blog, a brainstorm, a painting, or a line of handmade goods. My specialty is new product innovation and content development.
Partial client list for Chronicle Books includes Anna Sui, Lisa Congdon, Rifle Paper Co., Pendleton Woolen Mills, Oh Joy, Mr. Boddington's Studio, Benefit Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Julia Rothman, Lotta Jansdotter, Jessica Hische, Meg Mateo Ilasco, Cath Kidston, Mike Perry, and Fifi Lapin.
I live in this house in Berkeley with my husband and our daughter.
If you have an idea you'd like to develop together, email me.
