busterINK a division of Stun Creative

LOS ANGELES, USA // Kimberly was born in New York and couldn’t wait to return after college to work with buzzy, pop-culture driven networks including MTV, USA Network and Bravo. After 20 years of experience working in advertising in New York and LA, her focus has been results-driven print and digital campaigns for some of the biggest brands in Television and Entertainment. Clients and colleagues consider her a “get-it-done girl, with an eye for art direction and marketing trends.”

Kimberly’s contributions on both the network and agency side have led her to her current role as the Vice President of busterINK, the print and digital division she helped build for L.A.-based entertainment marketing powerhouse Stun Creative. There, she currently oversees print and digital campaigns for a variety of theatrical/network/streaming clients. Some of her recent key successes include HBO’s Westworld and its immensely popular Jon Snow poster for Game of Thrones, TNT’s Claws, TBS’s The Detour, AMC’s Better Call Saul, CNN’s Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet.

Two decades of supervising teams, managing client relations, and spearheading projects have earned Kimberly a number of accolades, including five PromaxBDA “Creative Agency of the Year” awards as well as numerous wins from the PromaxBDA, Clios, Graphis, Telly, Mobius, Mark, and Davey competitions.

When she’s not streamlining workflows and overseeing creative, she does her best to binge-watch her favorite shows and dedicate time to her passion project, a greeting card line inspired by her grandfather.
