Kimberly Unger is the author of the 2022 Phillip K. Dick Memorial Award-winning “The Extractionist. She created her first videogame back when the 80-column card was the new hot thing. This turned her literary love of science fiction into a full blown obsession with the intersection of technology and humanity. Kimberly followed up with degrees from the University of California at Davis and the Art Center College of Design that gave her the tools to work on both the creative and the business side of games and entertainment. She spent ten years working as a creative, followed by ten years as the CEO/Lead Designer for her own 3P mobile game studio before making the jump to the 3P Publishing team at Meta.
Today she spends her day-job time in MR, lectures on the intersection of art and code whenever necessary and writes science fiction about how all these app-driven superpowers are going to change the human race.
