Kurt Karr

President & CEO

From Construction To Professional Storytelling

Kurt came to his role of professional storytelling after a career in a variety of construction and construction-related firms, and after owning an office supply business. What he loves about Monkeythis is the opportunity it gives him to share the stories of people whose experiences illustrate the best of our client’s brand; stories of the people who make a difference in the lives of their patients, customers, and patrons.


Lu and Kurt have been married 43 years and have two adult children, Austin and Maggie, who together with their spouses, Kari and Jeff, have made them grandparents of five. They recently left their single-family home to move into a downtown loft. They love having weekends free of lawn or maintenance chores. Kurt and Lu have more time for kayaking, the road trips they love, and evenings around the fire sharing a glass of wine with friends and neighbors.
