Where creativity, curiosity, problem solving, athletics, open hearts + open minds live under one roof.
Karin, like [car-in]
I was made in Sweden, but now live in San Diego, CA and I’m somewhere between an American and a Swede – although…my heart will always be with Sweden.
You see, around the interwebs, I’m known for minimalistic and thoughtful design. Form blended w/ function is where it’s at, if you ask me.
In other words, my days are filled with helping driven folks like you stand out, look as brilliant as the services you provide while creating a strategy that will get you connected with whom you want to serve.
If you have a big vision, but you’re not sure how to put it together – I’m your gal.
But, how did I get here?
As a youngin, I spent all my time figure skating, making costumes with my mom and competing all over Europe. There was always something creative going on, whether it was painting, developing new products (oh yes, I had a “club” that designed solutions and things to be more functional, at like 11 years old…?!)
What got me here to the states though was….Golf! Yep, I got a golf scholarship after playing on the Scandinavian tour. I was certain that’s what I wanted to do, so when I got paid to come play in the U.S. – I was all in.
But, when I arrived at a small university in New Mexico, I had a slight wake-up call … not exactly what I envisioned in my head. I learned a lot – quickly.
Then my life took a turn. I was in a motorcycle accident wearing no helmet, no leather and no common sense at all. I was tossed 30 yards of the bike and…survived. I was airlifted to a hospital that could handle all my injuries; I had broken or shattered almost every bone on the right side of my body. The recovery process was grueling, but there was never a second thought. I knew what I wanted.
Right there and then life changed, forever.
After recovery, I finished my BFA degree in Computer Art and Design and even though I was slightly lost on how to apply my degree, I knew I was here to do something bigger. After all, I was given a second chance in life.
My “bigger thing” – my why – was and is helping others design and build their grand visions to make a greater impact. My why is to share my knowledge of how rewarding it is to have a strong foundation, doing it the right way from the beginning, using your unique skills and personality to literally come alive and how having a clear vision will set you up for tremendous growth.
My crew, yup I'm nothing without them.
How we see it...
One of the biggest reasons I became an entrepreneur was so I could use my business to make a greater impact, and we wouldn’t be pushing you to give back if we didn’t first do it ourselves. So, for every brand project purchased at KHD we will sponsor a child’s education. Therefore, when you invest in your future, you also invest in someone else’s.
