We all have dreams. Some of us dream of becoming a rock star, passing our finals, becoming a happy person, or even a K-Pop idol. However, more often than not, we relegate them to just that; dreams. A place to indulge in a mirage of our own making and a place beyond the barriers of reality. Rarely, do we realize our own potential to transcend ourselves. Kenneth explores our ability to transform our dreams through the utilization of symbols.

Ken grew up on the East Coast of the United States in New York, New Jersey, and, mainly, South-central Pennsylvania. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from the University of South Florida with a minor in Economics at a time when the university was still growing but was known for its writing and poetry focus. He received his Master’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin in Secondary English Education (M.S.Ed.) He has taught English Composition, Literature, and Public Speaking at the high school and college levels for twenty years in the US and Taiwan, most recently at Dominican International School in Taipei. His passion for reading and writing have led him to pursue life-long learning objectives and the creation of no less than seven novels, one of which is being considered for publication by Harcourt Publishers.
