My name’s Karina Stenquist, and I came to Madrid from Berkeley, California after finishing a degree in Political Theory (which prepared me perfectly for a career in…ummm….reading?). Anywhoo, came for a year and have stayed for almost 6 now! After attempts at English teaching and barwork, I got my big break and became the writer and presenter of a pioneering online video program on technology news, MobuzzTV.com. After talking to a camera for 2 years I decided I needed a breather. So was an intern at CNN; started this blog on immigration, expat, and travel issues; contributed to MAPMagazine.com on politics and cinema; and generally tried to find my place in the mediasphere. Now I’m planning my escape from Spain while trying to eke out a living as an English teacher and preparing for grad school apps. Wheee!
