Ken teaches guitar at several universities in California. He loves livelooping, especially using the Quantiloop app for iPad. Ken is a beta tester for the new Quantiloop version for iPhone.

A festival of live looping is planned in Sheffield in early December 2017. If you are interesting in appearing or assisting with the organisation in any way, or could help with sponsorship, please contact Nick Robinson.
