Born in the historically significant city of Philadelphia and named after a Japanse cartoon, Kimba Kerner started her never-existing career of dance as soon as she could walk. Her days were filled with the music of Disney's Cinderella and Polish pop classics which swelled and twittered in the living room from an old record player. Her mother and aunt sewed her a ballgown to go with her silver slippers which she remained in until they no longer fit.
Art school was settled on rather late, after one year proved Washington, D.C. to be a really boring city and the State Department forseen as an unsatisfying career destination.
After realizing that the answer to the meaning of human existence indeed rests in the hands of future generations, Kimba decided to pursue assisting in the molding of these yet-to-be-determined leaders through design. This class was deemed early on to be quite a beneficial step towards achieving that goal. However, discouraged by the signs of the world ending sometime soon, she scratched her initial plans and decided it is best to just keep an optimistic (though dry) humor and to gather a large basket of knowledgeability.
Her favorite childhood toys were her stuffed animals (which she and her three siblings amassed a mountain of) but the most loved was a white dragon with pink wings that wound up and played the Puff the Magic Dragon song.
