Traveling Circus: First Timers

This past weekend was a weekend of firsts, and I have photographic proof all of it was awesome. On Saturday, I went into the hills of Azusa and shot the very first scene of a short film I’ve been working on for the past couple years. We finally made use of our crowdfunding and shot […]

PROFESSIONALISM. No matter what your job is, or where you work, you will encounter people who challenge your sanity with their unprofessional behavior. That’s going to happen, and sometimes…sometimes all you can do is smile through your frustration and learn from their mistakes. Whether it’s a coworker who fails to do her job to the extent […]

DREAMS. Firstly, I’M BACK, PEOPLE! Most importantly, though, this week’s episode is all about coping. Sometimes you have a crush that isn’t reciprocated, sometimes you have a plan to reach a goal and it doesn’t work out the way you expected, sometimes you think you know your path and you hit an insurmountable roadblock. So deal […]

Chatter – Ep. 28 – Apr. 30, 2016

PINK VIRUS FUNDRAISER! This is the last Chatter I’ll be harassing you about this, and I hope this is the last time we need a fundraiser, and I pray that it’s because we finally get to push the vaccine forward and get it to market within my lifetime. We’ve got lives to save, people. Join […]

AM I TOO PRETTY TO DO MY JOB? I was having an online discussion last week, about how I’ve been told to dress more conservatively for certain meetings because I need to be taken more seriously. I’m fairly certain the length of my skirt has nothing to do with the functionality of my brain, and […]

Chatter – Ep. 26 – Apr. 17, 2016

SCATTERED. Ever wondered what it would be like to take a walk through my brain? Here’s your chance. This week’s episode is meandering, messy, and maybe a little scattered (a lot scattered). It’s a glimpse into what happens when I stop working for half an hour to address you, my lovely friends, and all the […]

THE PINK VIRUS. I’m making a documentary, y’all. I feel like I owe it to my family, the families of my friends, everyone who has ever been touched by breast cancer. Take a listen, and remember all the women who helped shape you. This is for them. This is for you.

MALACOSTRACA. Greek roots: malakós, meaning “soft,” and óstrakon, meaning “shell.” Though the shells of this class of crustaceans is only soft directly after molting, the name works well on many levels to describe the film that my guest, Charlie Pieper – the first male EVER to appear on a Kung Pao Kimmie Media podcast – talks about with […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 24 – Mar. 30, 2016

BE BOSSY. Don’t be afraid to stand up and make your voice heard, ladies. If you have a solution for a problem, say it. Fix it. Make your project better, even if all the men around you are floundering. Be the rock star I know you to be. Quiet women rarely change the world, my […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 23 – Mar. 23, 2016

EMBRACING YOUR FEMININITY. Yeah, I said it. Be who you are, whoever that is. If you’re going into a situation where you know you’ll accomplish your goal by presenting yourself (and therefore your project) in a certain way, there is no shame in doing so. So go out there, be who you are and who […]
