Kari is a nurse by profession but a fashion designer by heart. Aside from fashion designing Kari is also a make-up artist and a photographer. He was awarded Champion in the 25th Patimpalak ng Kasuotang Filipino held in Manila. “Nagsimula ako pasali-sali sa mga Poster Making Contests mula pre-school hanggang high school. Nanalo ako ng limang beses sa national level at dalawang beses internationally. Nagsimula ako sa pagdedesign ng mga damit noong high school. Kinulit ako ng mga kaibigan ko to design their gowns for the prom. Pero nung pumasok ako sa kolehiyo pinili kong kumuha ng degree sa Nursing. Nagbalik yung hilig ko sa design nung nakukuha ako para maging model. Naisip ko what if instead of modelling, I design the clothes instead?’ Iyon na yun. Bumalik na ako. Gumuhit at tumahi na ako ng mga gowns."
