Kiki was born and raised in Los Angeles. In high school, she attended the New York Film Academy's summer filmmaking program where she got to direct her very first 16mm film, “Unspoken Generosity”, on the Universal Studios backlot.

She attended the University of California, San Diego and graduated with a degree in jazz and international studies. She relocated to San Francisco to pursue a career in medicine.

As a latchkey kid she grew up reading books on film and dream palaces at the Los Angeles Public library and frequented the now shuttered Landmark theater to watch new, old, and obscure works in cinema. Turner Classic Movies is her jam and she hopes to take over Robert Osborne’s post in the distant future. 

When she’s not running experiments in the lab, you can find her hanging off a mountain face crushing multi-pitch climbs. In her spare time she hangs out in jazz clubs around the city.  


Tara Young is a Canadian who is very happy to be in San Francisco, where she now lives.

She is studying at the Beverly Hills Playhouse and has worked on numerous film and theatre productions in the Bay area.

Tara is low key and bruises easily but still​ fights crime at night.

She is extremely proud to be a part of the Gold Mountain family.
