About Me

Hi, I’m Kari Gundersen.

I grew up in East Vancouver in the 70’s and 80’s. Born to a teenage mother, I was given up for adoption and raised by an established family with three brothers who are 10, 15, and 18 years older than me. I was reunited with my birth-mother at age 25 which is when I met my half-brother and half-sister.

I’m a dancer, a beach jogger, and a rescue cat mom. I have 13 tattoos. I’ve owned the same 12-speed bike since 1984. I’m a visual, creative thinker and sometimes communicate in metaphor or mantra.

I am a bi-omnisexual, twice divorced, European heritage, intersectional feminist, anti-racist, sexual assault survivor. I’m not vegan, but I have two vegan meals every day.

The subject I can’t learn enough about is the central nervous system. My favourite author is Charles Eisenstein, he writes about social evolution. I’m obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race. Obsessed.
