Ken Doing Theatre and Reading the Classics

Ken was born and raised in a small town in California. He married and joined the Air Force after high school. The Air Force sent Ken to many far flung reaches of the planet, including Asia, South America, Europe, and the Middle-East. Ken has two children, both of whom are married and have made him a grandpa. He started writing short stories in high-school and just recently completed three one-act plays. He writes songs, performs in local theaters, and has a podcast called Ken Reads The Classics.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
