Brand Specialist / Writer / Designer

Karen's career began in the big ad agency business where she branded and promoted a number of large international and national clients – both consumer and business-to-business – and created, planned and executed many large events, traveling often to produce her work. Since escaping those boardrooms and forming her own company in 2001, Karen has promoted and branded high-end outdoor pursuits properties in the US and internationally, conservation and hunting groups, and non-profits, traveling to big outdoor locations as much as possible. She has tried to find clients whose interests match her own, allowing travel that mixes business with pleasure. She gets away to her place in the Texas Hill Country as much as she can and works from there. And then there's just travel for fun.
