Kjellrun "KJ" Owens

Kjellrun (shell-run) | They call me "KJ" | Owens

My persona is Yin & Yang; people tend to see me as the born and bred Minnesotan sweetheart with an infectious laugh and midwest manners. This is accurate, however, I am much more brains than beauty, and my bright lips speak even bolder. I strive for daily challenges whether it be improving my spirituality, physicality, or creativity. I love every fragmented moment of life; interviewing talented professionals, nightlife event planning, scouring for the latest industry updates, writing-writing-writing, traveling the world for documentary filmmaking, & lounging at happy hour with friends.

A graduate of Chapman University with a BFA in Television/Broadcast Journalism and minor in Public Relations, I have confidence in public speaking, training in image-awareness and reputation, knowledge of the entertainment industry, technical writing, filming, and editing skills, and field experience in public relations.

I believe that it is critical in life to continue learning and improving upon your craft. Set your dreams high & just go for it. I welcome challenge.
