About Karen

I would like to consider myself a woman about town. As I said, I would “like” to consider myself this individual. One day, I will achieve this goal. In the meantime, I am a work in progress.

Born in Montreal, Canada, I was raised in both Montreal and the San Francisco Bay Area. The moment I was able to, I was out of the house and ventured to parts unknown. Well, not exactly… I headed back to Canada for my undergraduate studies and then London, England for post-grad, both in the history of art.

I decided to head out to NYC although I didn’t have a job, an apt or friends but as the song goes, if I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere… Ultimately, I found a job, an apartment and made some incredible friends and after 15 years, NYC is still my home base today.

For the past 16 years I have been working in digital communications and management and through the various experiences I have had, in agency, in-house and as a consultant, my background has become far more integrated in a marketing capacity.

My blog is my opportunity to share my thoughts and experiences, journeys and opinions. I am not looking to promote it in any way and I often think of it as an archive for my reference. However, I hope, should you read it, you will enjoy some of the content as well!

For more information on my work experience, see my LinkedIn details below. In addition, a few highlights over the years.
