I’m Karen, a Planning student, starting my Master’s in the fall. I’m from Pittsburgh, PA, but I have lived in a lot of other places (ask me where if you want). My design influences are Eames, FLW, Japan, farms, music, pop culture. My interests are small-space living, community building, mid-century design, politics and population issues. I have a degree in music and hotel and restaurant management, and I have worked in a wide variety of areas, including having worked in San Francisco in the wine business. My secret: Growing up I wanted to be a cartographer. I’m looking forward to collaborating on this project with you.
