I couldn't have completed most of my web projects without Ken's patience, hard work, creativity and, most of all, expertise. - Heather Bragg
I highly recommend Ken's work. He is patient, provides great insight and makes fantastic recommendations during the entire web development process. Ken, takes the time to think about the user experience and how the user and the company can best mutually benefit from the web site. - Whitney Myrus
Ken immediately upgraded The Post and Courier's news and online capabilities on the day he was hired. He understood information in ways that most graphic artists will never comprehend.

My work

Hands on creator: The modern Web stack from server to front end is my friend, but my real love is in using that toolset to create contextually appropriate web presences for all manner of devices, be they experience-exposing event sites, product-driven e-commerce sites, or taxonomy-minded publications.

Coordinator, planner: I'm the lead for a Drupal-powered platform with team members in the U.S., Germany and Asia, supporting more than 150,000 e-commerce users. I've also created a wiki-like collaborative hyperlocal news website network, and much more.

Thinker: I have a strong conceptual background from years crafting deadline-driven data-heavy infographics for daily newspapers and working with all manner of clients.

Me

I like photography, podcasting, sharing and discussing ideas, traveling, history, beer, and juicy burgers; I often enjoy these in Stuttgart, Germany, where I've lived since 2011.
