New USM Media Group client Kimberly Butler

Who is Kimberly Butler you may ask? Kimberly Butler is a talented author;
actress & singer/songwriter and business woman. This dynamic, driven &
intelligent young African-American Business & Economics grad originally
hailed from a middle class family in a small town in Southern California.
Kimberley has overcome many tragedies & setbacks throughout her short life
and now resides in Berlin, Germany as she plots to elevate her career to new

In just over a quarter of century on this planet Kimberly Butler has lead a
rather colourful life overcoming many struggles; trials & tribulations on
her road to success. After surviving childhood trauma where she was raped as
a child; suffered bullying & coupled with a strict religious upbringing as
she was solely raised by her Mother who is a local Minister; a young Kim
found solace in Music and was active in her local church choir. Kimberly
excelled in High School and moved to Los Angeles for College & attended
California State University in Long Beach where after her first year was
honoured for her 3.8 GPA she maintained. Unfortunately after her first year
however, Kimberly found herself in need of money fast in order to stay in
University and an answered an online ad looking for models that unwittingly
lead her into beginning a career as an actress in the adult entertainment
industry under the stage name Ms. Panther. While studying for her BA in
Business & Economics she supplemented her income by starring in adult movies
for some industry biggest studios; magazine shoots; as a radio host hosting
an adult entertainment show and personal appearances for over 5 years.
During this Kimberly PKA Ms Panther was incredibly popular and developed a
large loyal following of fans worldwide; launched a website centred around
her career as well as a blog that chronicled her daily life as a porn star
all while attending school studying for her degree.

After graduating with a degree in Business Economics, Kimberly successfully
gained work in the corporate America & began to study for an MBA in Business
Management and retired from the world of adult entertainment. Via this new
career path, the young exec swiftly gained an expertise in developing and
implementing measurable and actionable business development, sales and
marketing strategies that drove growth and profitability. Unfortunately this
new career and happiness was short lived as following the financial crash
and a failed engagement from a long term relationship to her then boyfriend,
Kimberly found herself without a job. Reluctantly she was forced to return
to the adult industry not only to pay her bills but to help finish her
Master’s degree. This time under the new stage name of Alisha Madison,
Kimberly was more determined than ever to turn a negative into a positive
and use the funds from her porn career to elevate her progression in life.
After a good year of travelling around the world working, Kimberly was
invited to appear at a major international adult entertainment industry
event in Germany; the Venus convention. There, she met a German man who
courted & swiftly whisked Kim off her feet. Yet again prompting her to
re-evaluate her life and after an award winning career spanning over 70
titles saw Kim retiring once again from the industry, this time for good. In
early 2012 Kimberly then moved to Berlin, Germany to be with her new
boyfriend, where she works now in the field of online marketing for various
corporate clients in Berlin.

Today Kimberly is pursuing many new career goals as a successful business
woman including working on her autobiography as a published author; radio
personality and singer/songwriter. Staying true to her blogging past Kim
also still keeps up her new blog “Black Girl in Berlin” where she discusses
her difficulties fitting in to a new country; new relationship; race
relations in Germany; popular culture as well as her new career & life. Not
letting her past define her or overshadow her and with international
publishing; TV and record deals in the pipeline Kimberly Butler has
consistently and triumphantly overcome adversity throughout her life and is
now on the verge of an exciting new career in Europe as she starts the next
chapter of her life.
