Kimberly J. Scott
Kimberly dedicated her life to the arts starting at the age of four. After trying on dancer, choreographer, and singer, lighting design finally created deep roots. For many years Kimberly has roamed the country lighting many things such as dance, regional opera & theatre, festivals, theatre for young audiences, musical theatre, and dabbled in architectural lighting. She has worked as a lighting supervisor, stagehand, designer/creative, sound engineer, production manager and performer. She was (and is) privileged to work with some amazing legends, rising stars and colleagues who became amazing friends. Along the way Kimberly acquired a BFA in lighting and scenery (SUNY Fredonia), MFA in lighting and sound (Virginia Tech), and a USA 829 membership in Lighting Design.
Kimberly spent time in residence at the American Conservatory Theatre (Artistic Director: Carey Perloff, San Francisco CA), American Repertory Theatre (Artistic Director: Robert Brustein, Cambridge MA), Portland Opera (General Director: Christopher Mattaliano, Portland OR), and Florida Grand Opera (General Director: Robert M. Heuer, Miami, FL). Plus so many other venues and projects in between. Currently in the Washington DC area, Kimberly has provided Production Management services at Signature Theatre, lighting support at Shakespeare Theatre Company, and artist business support services.
Paralleled with a passion for lighting, Kimberly also has a passion for teaching. She’s created theatre and lighting curricula for adult continuing education and children’s outreach, along with undergraduate and graduate courses, all culminating in becoming Chair of the Visual Arts and Design program at Oakland School for the Arts (Oakland, CA). She has also taught Introduction to Theatre for active Coast Guard personnel onboard (the then deployed) USCGC Boutwell (WHEC-719) as part of the USCG ‘College at Sea’ program.
She is thrilled to have joined BPI and to be able to support dealers and sales reps by helping them to get the info and knowledge they need, while ensuring that BPI products live their best lives in projects all over the globe.
When not at work, you’ll find Kimberly volunteering as the Social Media Manager with her local Master Gardener program. She is also working to create a native and eco-friendly habitat on the little patch of earth she shares with her husband, their adopted indoor cat, and the four ‘once feral’ cats who keep showing up and staying.
