Marymount graduate Barton Kimball is an Emmy award-winning producer for NBC’s “The Voice.” On September 20, 2015, Kimball received an Emmy as a producer on “The Voice” in the Outstanding Reality-Competition Program category at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Kimball has a long list of credits as a producer on various reality-television programs, and also has served as a co-director and editor on a short film titled, “The Homeless Man.” Marymount provided Kimball the perfect stepping stone to his career as a producer.
Kimball received his Associate Degree from Marymount in 2002, and then went on to earn his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Film at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
As a producer, Kimball has traveled extensively, going as far as Australia for one of the shows on which he was working. Although he has found a niche working on singing and dancing-type shows, he spent six weeks in Jackson, Mississippi, working on a show for the History Channel titled, “Full Metal Jousting.” Kimball also is a member of the Producers Guild of America, a trade organization that represents television, film and new media producers in the United States.
Today, Kimball is in the middle of season nine of “The Voice,” which began in September, welcoming back coaches Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Kimball also recently got engaged and will be getting married in spring 2016.
