THRIVE with Kari Show_-24.jpg

My name is Kari Alana Heron. I am a storyteller. I tell three dimensional stories.

I connect with people. My work connects with people. I tell real stories - about real people, real brands, real places and real experiences. I use images, words and sounds to tell your story.

I come from a productive career in entrepreneurship, business consultancy, media and communications. Brand and content strategy are my hobbies. I create for a living. I am the Content Queen. I am a millennial with 20 years experience in the Caribbean and Middle East in media and marketing communication, on account of starting very young as a teen presenter on national TV in Jamaica.
