Kazmirah/Seagodess was on various undernet channels for many years. She was full of life, had lots of dreams and was very spiritual. She will be missed.

Born on May 27, 1954 to Marion and Jerry Mangiapia on Staten Island, New York, Karen grew up in Port Richmond until her family moved to Eltingville. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic School, Tottenville High School and the High School of Art & Design in New York City. At CUNY College of Staten Island she studied architecture which remained her strong interest all her life.

After working for a brokerage firm on Wall Street and a two year sabbatical in rural Tennessee, Karen joined Beefsteak Charlie’s on Staten Island and became part of a tremendous group of close friends whose support and friendship has lasted to the present day. At World Yacht she got a taste for the event planning business and proceeded to establish her own business, Skyline Yacht Charters, organizing business and private entertainment events on yachts in New York harbor.
