Karla discovered Telluride while working for IBM in the 70's. She moved here in 1977 and attended the very first Mountainfilm Festival in 1979. She's been hooked on Mountainfilm ever since and has been a Tour Presenter since 2002. Her many travels include trekking for months in Nepal, riding camels in Morocco and horse trekking in Outer Mongolia. She lives at the end of a mountain road near Telluride and generally tries to be out in the beautiful Colorado mountains as much as possible.
