  • It’s taken me a few days to catch my breath and find the words to write this but last week I lost my mentor & one of my closest friends. 8 years ago I was fortunate enough to meet Karl. Immediately what stood out to me was how kind, quirky and straight up he was - rare qualities to find. We immediately bonded over both being English and would often text English words back and forth to each other. Having Karl here made me feel not so far away from home and his ability to make the most difficult of conversations humorous made him a shining light in my and many others lives. One of the things that stood out about Karl was the fact he was everyone’s cheerleader, he was genuinely happy seeing those around him be successful. I owe Karl for everything I have because he has always believed in me, always looked out for me and given me opportunities when I was struggling personally and professionally. I wouldn’t be where I am today without his love and support. I will miss having to explain to people why the marketing team all had English accents, I will miss bringing him snacks from my trips home and I will miss our conversations where we would talk either talk about Mugs, Kool and the Gang or his love for his family and beloved dog Wolfgang. My fondest memories of Karl will always be in Vegas dancing to the Australian BeeGees, and a random breakfast we shared together in Heathrow airport in London or when he made me go on a trip to find a carpet cleaning machine. It’s those random times I will hold close to my heart. I will never forget you Karl, I’m going to do all things we talked about and I hope you know how much I appreciate you and how much I miss you.
