During that time, Karen has had the honor of working with many incredible actors and directors such as Sir Ben Kingsley, Angelina Jolie, Kevin Smith, and Phillip Noyce.
Working on a variety of productions, including Feature Films, TV series’ and commercials, Karen eventually gained enough experience to travel to Bangkok, Thailand to produce and direct her first documentary, “Slaughterhouse Kids.”
Karen used her logistics experience as an Assistant Director to work as the Operations and Logistics Manager for the highly successful and world renowned TED Conferences (2009 – Long Beach, USA and Oxford, England), where she rubbed shoulders with such luminaries as Robin Williams, Peter Gabriel, Will I Am, Al Gore and Bill Gates – just to name a few!!
