Cast & Crew
Kimberly is an award-winning writer & producer from West Chicago IL. Not to be confused with the west side of Chicago (it happens). She is one of 15 siblings, not all from the same family or bloodline. Which makes for great stories. "Viktory" is grounded in her personal experiences as a foster child. She started her career in theater as an actress but found limited roles out there for black women, so now she is focused on writing them. She started working on her friend's films to become a better screenwriter and has been in love with the medium ever since. "Viktory" is the first production of her own ever produced.

She was instantly enamored with "Viktory" because of its well-written charactersand unique perspective on transracial adoption. She's excited to be on the "Viktory" team, and can't wait to bring this story to the audience across the globe.
