Ken likes to build. 

Ken knows that more often than not, a breadboard or prototype can reveal insights and challenges, illustrate solutions, and change minds faster than an analytical model or written report is able to.  In situations where physical prototyping is not a feasible option, Ken draws upon his diverse toolbox of experience – developed through his years in design, engineering, manufacturing, consulting, and business – to augment technical intuition and tangible experimentation with thorough analysis.  One place where quick-and-dirty, trial-and-error, and what-ifs are not acceptable: his airplane hangar, where he built and now maintains his own plane.

Ken earned a B.S. in Product Design, an M.S. in Manufacturing Systems Engineering and an MBA from Stanford University.
