  • In her college days, Karli wrote the script for a short documentary on social media and targeted advertising.
  • Her Pokémon knowledge is backed by over two decades of watching the anime and playing the games.
  • She's lost track of how many times she's rewatched Wednesday.


In 2019, Karli entered the publishing industry as a freelance writer for Comic Book Resources and TheGamer. A year later, she joined the CBR editorial team, where she was tasked with reviewing thousands of articles and providing feedback to her team of writers. She has since developed a passion for writing about pop culture and entertainment with anime and video games at the top of her list. Writing for Xoop and Dot Esports is the next step forward in her professional career as a writer.
