IMG_0252Alexis has created marketing strategies for million-book bestsellers and NBA All-Star champions for the past decade within the publishing industry. She is presently completing her MLitt in Theology and the Arts at the University of St. Andrews, researching the intersection of algorethics for authors and digital hospitality. When she is not running around Scottish ruins or drinking too much tea, Lex works as the senior marketing manager with Zondervan Reflective, an imprint of HarperCollins Christian Publishing.

…That’s what I tell people professionally. What I’ll tell you this this:

I’m an overly-passionate bookworm who loves a good conversation over steaming cups of tea. Theology of desire, the purpose of suffering, the theme of grace in Ted Lasso or Schitt’s Creek, humanity’s need of art, the execution of a proper hashtag strategy—I can sink hours into these topics, but I’m also on board with listening to what get you fired up as well.

I’m a marketer in the Christian publishing industry. I collaborate with authors to bring their message to readers with the fantastic team at Zondervan Reflective. That means I get to pour creative energy into how people hear about books and engage with messages the Church needs. I love my job.

I’m a master’s student at the University of St. Andrews where I am researching how a theology of hospitality applies to digital spaces and the creatives who use them to share their work. When I’m not curled up with this week’s reading and a mug of tea, I’m usually walking alongside the North Sea or in a cafe discussing St. Augustine or charcuterie with one of my coursemates.

I’m the host of The Bad Book Reviews Podcast, where I get to discuss not only the hilariously cruel reviews authors receive, but also unpack what it means to talk about books we don’t enjoy and accept criticism from the readers we seek to serve.

When I’m not working on professional or writing projects, I’m either reading, planning my next international trip, or trying to gather friends around my table for a meal.
