Audience Engagement Editor

Karan is The Narwhal’s audience engagement editor, with a focus on the intersections of journalism and community-building. A recent graduate from UBC’s Master of Journalism program, Karan worked at 5X Press as an associate editor expanding the reach of the publication’s newsletter — something he is a nerd about — and was the audience engagement intern at Xtra Magazine in 2021. Karan finds it hard to shut up about French pop music, the fashion industry, the politics of climate change, environmental racism and Lorde.
