Kari knows how to draw a crowd. On any given day, you’ll see creative directors, project managers, copyeditors and writers gathered around her. They’re all looking over her shoulder, watching in wonder as she crafts some shiny code or fixes a pesky bug.
But performing under pressure is OK with Kari. She’s at her best when tackling a complex problem and everyone is counting on her to code her way out. Kari’s a seasoned pro and a digital agency veteran who has designed websites, built interactive experiences and implemented QA testing plans for some of the world’s best-known brands.
She’s also comfortable in the literal spotlight. Aside from being our star developer, she’s a professional singer-songwriter with hundreds of songs and four albums to her credit. And she’s a huge fan of Jack Kerouac and all things Beat Generation.
