Hey there!

My name is Kenneth. I'm a writer and an entrepreneur. I'm a big fan of technology and electronics.

I own a server company, but I've started a lot of companies over the years, nothing that's been very successful.

I write both fiction and non-fiction. I write poetry. I'm a big fan of poetry. I go to open-mic nights and poetry-slams where I perform my pieces on stage, in front of a live audience.

I also enjoy theater. I really love 'Hamilton' which is currently in the U.S. right now, and it's very big.

I also like art and dancing. I go to alternative clubs and nightclubs, usually, you know, punk/goth style clubs. And I enjoy that sort of atmosphere, and the interaction with everybody.

I'm a big fan of film. I run a movie club called the 'Cinemaniacs', where I watch a film every two to three days with a group of people and we talk about it in a sort of open forum. I also go to the theaters quite often, it's sort of my quiet space and, you know, home away from home.

I enjoy folk music, German metal, and hip-hop. I like a lot of popular artists, as well up-and-coming artists that not a lot of people hear about. And I take a lot of enjoyment in finding new bands that no one has ever heard and sharing them with my friends.
