Ken was born in El Paso, Texas and raised in the St. Louis suburb of St. Charles, Mo. “HEART of the BEHOLDER” is based on the true story of how Ken lost his family, his multi-million dollar chain of video stores, and almost his life. Ken refused to buckle to the terror tactics of a group of religious fanatics and the corrupt prosecutor they had blackmailed into ruining him because he would not remove Martin Scorsese's controversial film, "The Last Temptation of Christ", from his stores.

“BEHOLDER” had been up and down Hollywood development slates for many years. Academy Award-winning director, Robert Wise, was one of Ken's mentors and encouraged him to write and direct the film himself. After 12 long hard years, Ken directed his family's story which has won more Best Feature Films awards then any other indie film.

Ken earned his Screen Actors Guild card in 1994 with advice from his first mentor, John Candy, and fulfilled his promise to John by helping many others earn their SAG cards. To survive in Hollywood, Ken has worked as an actor, telemarketer, body guard, limo driver, messenger, valet, production assistant, census taker, and many other jobs.
