Imoru is best known for casting SyFy’s highest-rated show, “Z Nation,” whose ensemble was comprised of 90 percent local actors from the Pacific Northwest — all in regular, guest and co-starring roles.

Imoru is the president and co-founder of Rebel Kat Productions, a film finance company with a mission to produce projects that empower the voices of women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and persons with disabilities — both in front of and behind the camera.
