Kennedy Allen is an actor, podcaster, writer, freelance journalist, sci-fi/comic book nerd, baseball fan, and cat mom. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Kennedy comes from an acting background with separate emphases on Shakespeare and improvised theatre. She co-produces and hosts the award-winning weekly podcast Black Tribbles, which enabled several opportunities, including a year-long contribution to Philadelphia Weekly, her participation in the 17th Annual Arturo Schomberg Symposium, and her hosting of events such as the 3rd Annual AfroFuturist Affair and the WINS 30th Anniversary Luncheon & Award Ceremony of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. In her spare time, Kennedy, a.k.a., Storm Tribble, can be found pondering the lack of diversity in comics, chipping away at that sci-fi novel that's taking her forever to write, and training for her next Spartan Race.
