Ken is quiet and resilient. He likes nature, computers, music, Wolverine football, and Red Wings hockey. He can relate any life experience to a scene from The Simpsons. He loves his family and friends. He graduated college in 2000, but moved from Michigan to Massachusetts for some more! His dislikes include noisy neighbors and people who don't merge.
In May 2000, I toured Australia with the Men's Glee Club. Ian Tadashi Moore made a great webpage with photos, but it disappeared. I also spent a week in New Zealand with Andy and Lance. We saw glow worms with the natives, rolled down a hill in a ball, and bungeed 150' over a river.
I have also spent non-negligible time in the following places (mostly on family vacations, a high school Europe trip, and Michigan Men's Glee Club tours): Anchorage, Alaska; Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Gettysburg; Washington, D.C.; Ohio: Cincinnati, Kent, Akron, Cleveland; Michigan: Midland, Kalamazoo, Oscoda, Traverse City, Glen Arbor, Grand Rapids, Grand Ledge, Detroit; Canada: Wawa, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver; Kentucky, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Utah, South Dakota, Grand Canyon, California: Sacremento, San Francisco, San Diego, La Jolla, Palm Springs, Riverside, Anaheim, Pasadena, Palo Alto; Europe: Budapest, Prague, London, Paris, Strasbourg, Salzburg, Vienna; Oregon: Portland, Corvallis, Eugene; Seattle, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Madison, WI; Colorado: Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs, Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins; Las Vegas; St. Louis.
More to come as I recall them!
Avalon might be considered a virtual place...
Michigan Stadium is home of the Wolverines and the weekly gathering place of 107,521 fans, but I had to travel to Pasadena to see them win the National Championship in 1997. The Red Wings play in Joe Louis Arena and were kind enough to sweep the 1996 Finals in Detroit.
I had a wonderful time at Andover High School.
I watch FOX (That 70's Show, King of the Hill, Simpsons, and Malcolm in the Middle) and (mostly animated) reruns (The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, Seinfeld, and News Radio). I used to watch Northern Exposure. Now that I have Comedy Central, I watch The Daily Show, Glick, and Southpark. Homestar runner and Strong Bad don't have their own TV show -- yet.

I used to read for pleasure often. Though I rarely get to anymore, I did bring a stack of books to Boston. Supposedly we have great bookstores, but it's got to be hard to compete with Powell's! If it's my birthday or you're feeling generous/curious, feel free to peruse my Amazon wish list. Having a wishlist helps Amazon make recommendations. Another neat feature are purchase circles.
Here is some MIT Trivia, and here is a light-hearted set of answers to common MIT questions.
In the midst of the scattered VLSI and Distinguished Guest lectures, this was an interesting diversion.
