I'm Kari. Nice to meet you.

👋🏼 You and I will probably get along if you're the kind of person who love great stories.

I’m a marketing geek that works hard to help businesses find their purpose by bringing them back to the basics - the human experience. Sadly, the reality is that most businesses market in a way that's completely unrelatable for the average joe. Technical jargon. Business speak. Strictly selling.

My experience, expertise with various industries, and creative storytelling skills allows companies to get real results - to connect with the people behind the screens, and develop impactful relationships that will improve client retention, and leave a lasting impression.

Starting during college working in a marketing content creation internship for a human trafficking non-profit to filming at the Roller Derby World Cup and working on post-production for two movies (yes, I'm on IMDB!)🎥 - I've learned that great stories are the driver of every successful campaign.

“We are all storytellers. We all live in a network of stories. There isn’t a stronger connection between people than storytelling.” ― Jimmy Neil Smith
