Kimberly’s many and varied lives have included: Actor, Baker, Bartender, Director, Entertainer, Essayist, Fool, Host, Orator, Pastry Chef, Producer, Proprietor, Stage Manager, and Writer.
The only one she’s nailed thus far is Fool.
Her films (and those she has worked on) have screened in hundreds of film festivals around the world, some have even scooped up a few awards along the way. Ever a fan of live reading series and storytelling events, she has performed in The MOTH story slam events around New York City and has founded and hosted three different reading series in New York: DISH, a monthly food and drink reading series at NYC’s Housing Works Bookstore and Café, NPR’s DimeStories at Brooklyn’s Barbès, and The Nervous Breakdown’s Literary Experience at Happy Endings in Chinatown. Currently focusing on writing, Rizzoli has published Kimberly’s recipes in the book, Brooklyn Bar Bites (2016), and she is a contributing editor for the creative nonfiction website The Nervous Breakdown. Her work has been published by CRAFT Magazine, SMITH Magazine, and The Mighty, among others.
She busies herself by working on multiple projects at once; currently: a memoir, several screenplays, and a documentary about female film editors.
