After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Kimba moved to Los Angeles where she began her writing career penning docuseries and true crime shows. She loves telling stories about people of color in unexpected places doing unexpected things and recently optioned her international thriller ANOTHER RIVER. In 2021/2022, she was a finalist for the ABC/Disney TV Writing Program and Universal's Screenwriter's Lab. Currently, she is a TV Drama fellow in Fox Entertainment’s Writers Incubator Program.
