Kari grew up in Prunedale, California. Raised by wild hippies, she was always drawn to The Arts. Her passion for editing was born from watching too many music videos.
Kari discovered iMovie during her freshman year of high school, but even as she put together her very first project, she knew there had to be better software out there. She spent the next three years teaching herself Final Cut Pro, participating in school-wide film festivals, and taking on as many projects as possible.
After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles to attend Video Symphony, where she learned how to use Avid, and became Final Cut Certified. From there, it was one adventure after the next with internships and freelance work, until she was hired full-time. She has worked on a multitude of projects, and is currently working as a Union Assistant Editor at Done+Dusted in Santa Monica, California.
