Kim Murray McDonald (nickname: flutie) is a social engagement ninja warrior based in Norfolk, Virginia.
Founder and principal at Piccolo Creative, a boutique social media & creative social engagement consultancy, she is a visionary, yet is all hands-on, detail oriented and stays true to the big picture. Curious? Read on...
Kim is also a writer and artist. She has spent the last 4 years writing for magazines, non-profits, app developers, technology consultants, filmmakers, authors, artists, and academics, among others.
Kim is also a creator and advocator of community based art, specifically diological art, in which the role of the audience is drastically different; instead of simply reacting to already created art, the audience is invited into an ongoing dialogue and plays an active role in the creation of art. As a community catalyst, in 2013 she was given the opportunity to create a piece for the TEDxSanAntonio "Minds Wide Open" event.
Her personal work is inspired by the themes of identity, gender roles & relationships, the implications of self-expression, and the price of progress, specifically regarding the conflict between man and technology.
Where I scribble the trash.
"America is now wholly given over to a damned mob of scribbling women, and I should have no chance of success while the public taste is occupied with their trash..."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1855
