MEET CO-FOUNDER JEN KANTER

JEN KANTER

A native of Seattle & graduate of the University of Washington, Jen began her career negotiating sports contracts with FOX Cable Networks & then continued on to AMC networks (AMC, IFC, Sundance, WE, IFC Films) where she executed senior level sales & marketing partnerships representing millions of dollars in both licensing fees & marketing value.

Working with all the largest media distributors in television for 17+ years – Jen traveled extensively around the country & while doing so, grew an even fonder appreciation for being home in Los Angeles.

Jen loves L.A. street art, hiking in the Santa Monica mountains, & KCRW. She is constantly on the hunt for vintage & eco-friendly fashion & beauty products, too.

One of her all time favorite mottos is, “Si Se Puede!” (Thank you, Dolores Huerta)
