Originally from Austin, TX, Karl spent significant stints in Minneapolis and Brooklyn before settling in Portland, Oregon. Before joining The Wild Honey Pie, Karl enjoyed two years at FRONTRUNNER Magazine as their Music Editor. When he’s not researching and making lists of his favorite new music—and when it's not a global pandemic—he’s likely biking around to coffeeshops or breweries in a flannel like it’s a dang Portlandia episode. At age 15, Karl's favorite band was Coldplay, like everyone else; now, his favorite artists include Jamila Woods, King Princess, Poliça and The National. As evidenced by the previous sentence, he loves semicolons, but don’t worry—he is also quite fond of em dashes.
