Callisto Media (part of Penguin Random House) focuses on data-driven publishing and tech media. Our objective was to produce stunning non-fiction books within limited budgets and quick turnaround times. Throughout my tenure, I contributed to the creation of 80+ highly successful titles that garnered numerous 5-star ratings on Amazon. One of my favorite things to do was to help direct illustrators through complex illustration programs for a wide variety of books, from workbooks to children's storybooks.
