Jane (commonly known as Koko) is the Austin blogger behind A Taste of Koko®, Austin’s top food and travel blog. A Taste of Koko features the hottest restaurants and weekend getaways and is the official restaurant expert for Visit Austin TX.

Jane has been a speaker at South by Southwest (SXSW), Texas Conference for Women, BlogHer, BlogHer Food, The Hustle 2X, University of Texas Austin, Google, and Whole Foods Global on entrepreneurship and social media. She also hosted the largest food crawl in Austin during SXSW 2014 with over 20,000 participants. Koko's Guide to Austin is her first book.


A believer in the power of media, Kana challenges her global, high-end client base to produce smarter and more inclusive content so that their efforts benefit the brand fiscally — while also earning them points with the Universe ( aka “Millennial Equity”).

For over a decade, Kana focused on entertainment media, working in production for companies such as NBC, HBO, Showtime, BBC, Nike and MTV (every department from pre to post/marketing, including a brief stint in stunts) and transitioning into the digital publishing industry creating strategies for publishes and retailers such as Harper-Collins Publishing, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Cox Media, Conde Nast, Google, Apple, Sony and Amazon. A pioneer in the eBook space, her creative campaigns as Marketing Director for BooksOnBoard included work with a wide array of partners from Tyra Banks, to the Daytime Emmys and Nascar, and helped the virtually unknown eCommerce store grow to be the #1 largest independent eBookstore in the world, #3 overall behind Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Kana’s diverse experience has ingrained a deep understanding of brand and creative strategy across consumer markets. This insight provides her with the tools to pivot under high pressure situations and create out-of-the-box opportunities for her clients for more impactful business development opportunities. All of which has allowed her to adapt quickly to meet the needs of Dos Mundos’ high-end clientele — as well as be dangerous in a game of Catan.
