Who am I working with, and why? Is this collaboration or just a lot of talking? When is working together amazing, and when is it time to go it alone? Publishing executive and editor Christina Amini will dive deep into how collaboration works (and also, when it doesn’t). Over the last 20 years, Amini has worked on more than 500 projects as an editor at Chronicle Books, and has overseen thousands more as the publishing director for art, food, and lifestyle publishing. She has worked with a variety of authors, including Wendy MacNaughton, JR, Jason Polan, Adam J. Kurtz, Jane Mount, Julia Rothman, Yoshitomo Nara, and many more. Amini will share how authentic relationships lead to great results and how our creative work can bring us deeper into our relationships.
Christina Amini is the Executive Publishing Director of Art, Food, and Lifestyle Publishing at renowned independent publisher Chronicle Books. She is happy to be a professional collaborator and creator—bringing new ideas to fruition every season, as well as overseeing the publishing of more than 120 books and gift products every year. Her previous experience includes being the Online Marketing Manager at HarperCollins Children’s Books, the first Online Editor at Dwell Magazine, and rising from intern to Executive Publishing Director in her 15 years at Chronicle Books. She is also the steward of artist Susan O’Malley’s work, the Chair of Diversity and Inclusion at her children’s school, and a museum guide at SFMOMA.
