FAMILY LIFE

Ken is a lifelong resident of Southern California and a seventh generation Californian.

His best friend and wife is a former prosecutor herself, and currently practices law as a special education attorney fighting to make sure special needs children get equal education and opportunity. 

In his spare time, Ken enjoys traveling with his family, running marathons, playing guitar, comedy, film, and swimming.
