"You never get a second chance to make first contact." In the far-flung future, humans make their way out into the galaxy, with disastrous results. Most of the few generation ships that survive do so by making contact with the already established Iildiran Empire. Based on Kevin J. Anderson's prequel to the award-winning series "The Saga of the Seven Suns", Veiled Alliances meshes art, story and mobile technology to deliver a reimagining of one of...

Story
Tagline
CEO, Author, Gamer, Futurist
Introduction

Kimberly attended both the University of California at Davis (ENG ‘92), and the Art Center College of Design (Ill ’98/Honors).   She has written two textbooks on mobile game design, “Game Development Essentials: Mobile Game Development” and “The Official Game Salad Guide to Game Development” both designed to serve as an entry point for new developers.  She is currently the CEO/Founder of Bushi-go, Inc. and serves as an adviser with the Harvard Business School start-up partners program.  She also lectures at UCSC’s Baskin School of Engineering as part of their Games and Playable Media Master’s degree program and in her remaining time writes science-fiction.

Bragging rights
Completed 90% of my "bucket list". I can joust, ski, sing a-capella (bring earplugs), break into any car built before 1987 and leave no trace (after 1987, well, that's another story). I am the soccer mom to a budding international spy, the "Dr House" of veterinary medicine and quite possibly the next great American Game Designer (if I can just get him to write this sh*t down)..
Education
  • Art Center College of Design
    Ill, 1995 - 1998
    Graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Illustration and a specialization in Digital Media (back when the Digital Department was still being envisioned).
  • University of California, Davis
    English, 1988 - 1992
    Graduated with a Major in English Literature and a Minor in Writing. Discovered later on that the symbolic languages of literature have a direct parallel in video-games and modern media.
