Ken prides himself on his organic, natural style that brings out the personality in his subjects. His resume includes work for clients such as Men’s Health.com, Chicago Athlete magazine, Valley Social magazine, Anjin Asian Restaurant, Sophistikate, Claudia Kleiner, Anna Fong, and Chic Gems etc.
Ken has worked on more than 60 film sets—everything from low-budget independent films to major studio projects for Universal and 20th Century Fox. As a director, Ken has brought in every project on time and under budget. Ken's experience includes directing, producing, screenwriting, gripping, gaffing, PAing, ACing, cinematography and set photography—meaning he's comfortable acting as a one-man shop, managing the film process from start to finish with his own blend of humor and professionalism.
Ken's short film Return to Grace won the People’s Choice Award at the 2012 Elgin Film Festival. At the 2011 72-Hour Windy City Shoot Out, his team won the Critic’s Choice Grand Prize for their comedy Role Initiative: A D&D Musical. And his short film "No Secrets Between Seamen" was featured in the 2010 Chicago Comedy Film Festival.

To me, style is just the outside of content, and the content the inside of style, like the outside and the inside of the human body. Both go together, they can't be separated.
