Kimberly Marcela is a screenwriter and filmmaker who is passionate about equal rights movements and Latin-American culture. Raised on both coasts, in Los Angeles and Miami, her dual upbringing exposed her to many different art forms, cultures, and lifestyles. Dance, theater, and film all piqued her interest, but brewing under the surface was her first love — writing.
Armed with her passion and a desire for higher education, Kimberly graduated the Creative Writing for Entertainment Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Full Sail University, and later went on to the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television. Since her time in high school and beyond, Kimberly has been published through a variety of platforms, such as content for Full Sail University's online literary magazine, The Aviator and on-air radio talent JoJo Wright, as well as health and lifestyle articles for LAUSD, and an anthology book, to name a few. With a growing appetite for the film and television industry, Kimberly wrote and produced multiple short films, music videos, and creative content for millennials and generation Z. She also completed an internship at Sony Television Networks and at Film Independent at the Los Angeles Film Fest. In both organizations, she had the chance to use her bilingual proficiency and bicultural understanding to reach a broader Latino audience. Her hard work, great attitude, and proven ability have always paved the way for new opportunities, like establishing a monthly column for Film Independent, one of the most important organizations for filmmakers around the world.
Kimberly is currently working as Head of Creative Development and Production for Rx Media Productions in Los Angeles, creating, directing, and producing original content that reflects her deeply held passions.

Glass to Sand: A collection of poems and short stories
by Kimberly Marcela
There is an expression that says: "An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward."
In Glass to Sand, this concept is explored by the author, sometimes painfully, others with colorful delight. Kimberly explores millennial themes of heartbreak, self-confidence, and reflections in six short stories including the eponymous finale, preceded by a handful of confection-filled and wistful poems.
