Editorial Manager

The LEGO Group
January 2017 - December 2018

As Editorial Manager, I planned and oversaw the LEGO licensed publishing portfolio in China. The aim was to transcreate quality content for the LEGO fans in China, whether they're kids or adults (or kidults, if you're into that sort of thing). My focuses were to ensure that the books and magazines were produced to LEGO's high demand for quality and that the localized content stayed faithful to the LEGO brand.

I also curated an internal China Insights newsletter to keep our global team up-to-date on market trends.

Editor

Gensler
June 2014 - September 2016
