Let me first just say what I stand for. I feel art is very important. I feel blessed to have been able to make music with so many wonderful people in so many equally wonderful places. Music warms my heart when it aches and fills my soul in times of doubt. Music inspires me and fills my life with color and meaning. Writing, books, songs, and screenplays has been an absolute joy producing more emotion and change in my life than I ever thought possible. I also love nature and think, like music, its’ very important. I defend both of these things I love fiercely. Children come packaged with these loves, and I’ve been lucky to reclaim them. I defend music and nature so children in the future can enjoy both. We can only try, and never give up, to accomplish the things we think are important. I’m just doing the best that I can. I’m honored by anyone whose read, listened or smiled in my direction. I hope I can do the same for you.


His Story

Now and Forward 2024 – Ken will publish his debut novel, The Arsonist, a corporate thriller centered on Wall Street and Climate Crisis in early 2024. Also on deck for 2024/early 2025 is Ken’s first children’s album, the Dharma Revival album, and his non-fiction debut

Author Bio: I’m a graduate of University of Colorado at Boulder who began my career in the trading pits of Chicago. My career track would take me around the world and, through happenstance, into the most prestigious institutions on Wall Street. I pivoted onto a path of music, writing, and sustainability, the latter which would again take me deep into the Wall Street power structure and complete the inspiration for The Arsonist. My own rise and fall and the people I met along the way seeded the Arsonist’s memorable villains and unlikely heroines. The Arsonist contains many true stories, like the running of the bulls which is largely verbatim from experience. The Arsonist, A Cal Minor Story is my first novel with more in the works. I work on climate solutions through my other company and hope to continue writing both about sustainability and the trapping of humanities insatiable appetite for just about everything.  I also write about Mindfulness and Life under the developing philosophy, The Art of Here and Now.
