Kim writes in both English and Slovenian languages and currently lives in Cambridge (UK) where she joined a scriptwriting forum called WRiTEON in 2013 and soon got involved as a writer, actor, director, committee member and workshop leader until taking over as chair in 2016 and later becoming Artistic Director.
In Slovenia, Kim founded an independent theatre company Zavod Zofka to allow her and her closest artistic collaborators to put on plays for children and adult audiences.

She also runs workshops for playwrights, actors, drama teachers and directors and takes every opportunity to further her education in all areas of theatre by attending workshops and masterclasses or by meeting and working with playwrights and theatre makers from all over the world via her involvement with the international playwrights’ network The Fence or the network of theatre translators Eurodram.
