Bio: Kimberly considers herself a maverick, which means an unorthodox or independent-minded person or an unbranded calf or yearling. She prefers the first definition. A writer, an architect and historian, an artist, and most recently, a musician, she is fascinated with juxtapositions like positive and negative, beauty and ugly, sublime and repulsive, black and white, reality and fantasy; and with the notion of the “other” and what it means to be human. She is also a bit obsessed with simulation theory. Kimberly currently spends her time between pursuing an MFA degree in prose and literary journalism at Mills College and bartending at her favorite dive bars.
