Patton Hall 103Q

Ken originates from Cincinnati, and is a proud Ohio University graduate, having majored in Outdoor Education. He has been a part of The Patton College of Education since January 2018.

He has lived in Michigan, Illinois, and New York but now resides in Athens and has done for over 20 years with his wife (Erin) and two children (now Bobcats also!)   

When not advising students, Ken can be found pedaling the bike path, looking through telescopes, or rehearsing and planning interpretive programs and stage shows.  Ken is a crossword puzzle and Sudoku fiend, and teaches the Environmental Interpretation class each fall!
