Filippo Selden Jessica Lewis  
Video Creation & Marketing Graphic Design & Media  
I am a creative rationalist. I like legos and numbers, but also art and logic. I don’t believe in black and white. Everything can be looked at differently. Anything can be great. I have 16 years of experience in marketing management, but I still curious as the first day. I never cease to challenge myself. I never allow myself to be dull or bored. I never stop looking ahead or asking questions. For me, passion and quality are two faces of the same coin. As a specialist on the consumer engagement & analytics team, Jessica is able to identify and prioritize marketing needs, develop strategies and plans to meet these needs, measure and analyze results, and recommend and implement new strategies, solutions, and programs to achieve goals. She has been an essential element in our rapid growth and in our success connecting authors to readers.
