Karin Elena Wolf was born in New York City to a Puerto Rican mother and a Norwegian-American father. The eldest of two children, her and her younger brother were raised in NYC and northern NJ. Her father was an officer in the U.S. military, an MBA graduate, and business executive. In 1960, her mother moved from Puerto Rico to NYC as a teenager and attended a performing arts school for Hispanics, performing in stage productions throughout NYC and a Spanish-language soap (a.k.a. novela) for Telemundo.
A bookish child, Karin lived mostly in northern New Jersey where she excelled in academics and athletics. In middle school, she was placed in Rogate, a program for gifted and talented students. Outside her studies, she demonstrated strength in soccer and other sports, often playing varsity.
In 1991, she began dancing on Club MTV after a friend invited her along on an audition for the show at NYC's Palladium. After Club MTV ended she went on to dancing on MTV's The Grind while attending university, taking classes in acting and dramatic literature which sparked an interest in acting. Subsequently, she pursued acting for a few years in L.A., but preferred NYC and returned home to finish her studies in literature and creative writing, graduating with a B.A. in English and working as an editor and studio manager.
In 2000, she switched gears, taking a break from the entertainment industry to start a family and write. She resumed acting in the fall of 2008 and resides in the NYC area with her two children.
