I am a working artist, advertising creative, speaker, and consultant. I make art to inspire conversations. I create experiences that drive emotions and make memories. Between the world of physical and digital there is a connective element of pure design and intention. This is where I play. Somewhere undefined, beyond the boundaries that words make.

Kim believes, first and foremost, in human-centric design and integrating technology with strategy in her time-based work.

With a background in fine art, music, and carpentry Kim brings an attention to detail and diverse styles to both her video installation, live performance and advertising work. Kim’s art primarily focuses on humanism, media and change incorporating historical and found media. Kim holds a degree in Digital Art & Design from Full Sail University and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2013. Kim's work has displayed her original works at places like SOFA Expo, The Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago, Facets Cinematheque and is on display in the permanent collection in The National Music Centre of Canada. As a creative, she’s worked for top advertising agencies for over a decade. She has developed expertise in building programmatic executions merging aesthetics, psychology and technology. This, coupled with holistic analytics, yields better decision-making and provides a unique ability to fine-tune actionable plans that get results. Kim speaks internationally at conferences such as FITC on living a creative life, overcoming adverse situations, mixed reality, emerging media, and gender. Kim is currently based in Chicago running her creative firm Make Amazing Inc. and is a resident artist at the Chicago Art Department. She can be found performing improvised visuals with the Instigation Orchestra and Mike Reed's Flesh and Bone.

Kim is an outspoken advocate for social change through technology, meditation and bananas.
