Kimberly Chmura, president of KCC Productions in Miami Beach.

What do you do in real life?
All of the above! Book and find talent to create culturally superior music events.

How long have you been in Miami?
Nine years.

How long have you been in the music business?
Seven years.

What is the wildest event you have handled? No need to mention names or addresses unless you want to.
There have been so many it is hard to choose. The music business is extremely challenging. My mantra is “I love my job I love my job”, to give you some insight.

What do you like most about what you do?
I love the challenge of every task and seeing the end result, which I judge myself on harshly. I have always been a perfectionist!

What do you do now, that you did not do 5 years ago?
Take double doses of Tylenol!

What do you do when you are not working?
I never stop working. If I’m not working, I’m sleeping; does that answer your question?

Something new that you have just discovered about yourself?
I have found patience and endurance in this job. They are definitely acquired virtues in my case.

One luxury that you cannot live without?
Manicures once a week. My salon is my sanctuary and my manicurist is my therapist!

Favorite Restaurant?
Specchio in Surfside (you can order off the menu; love the special service and of course the food.)

Three Words to describe you?
Intense, fair, kind.

So what does the future hold for you?
To become a non-profit organization and have the creative freedom to produce my own shows.
