I specialize in online outreach solutions for nonprofits and small businesses. My services include web development for Wordpress and Drupal, Social Media marketing, and email marketing.
My name is Karen Lauria Kosi. I was born and raised in New York City. I received my first computer in 1998 as a gift from my parents. Instantly fascinated by the possibilities of website design, I taught myself HTML and, later on, XHTML, CSS, PHP and graphic design techniques.
From 2006 to 2010, I managed communications for a prestigious New York art gallery. In this role, I designed and coded the gallery’s website and designed print advertisements that appeared in numerous artworld publications. I also coordinated printing for exhibition catalogues and invitations. Prior to that, I worked as a web design intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Currently, I work full time as a freelance website and social media consultant, helping organizations improve the functionality of their websites and plan online communications initiatives via social media and email marketing.
I have a BA in Art History and I am currently pursuing my MA in Middle Eastern Studies.
I generally work Monday through Friday, from about 10am to 6pm EST. I definitely prefer to communicate via email and I am always very quick to respond to my emails.
I currently have two steady consulting clients, whose websites, social media accounts, and email newsletters I manage, but I as I approach the final semester of my MA program, I am eager to grow my business, take on new projects, and expand my portfolio and skill set.
At the moment, I am especially interested in longterm work opportunities (i.e. website, social media, and email list management), but I am also interested in shorter term projects (i.e. coding a WordPress custom theme or an email template).
