Kenny was born and raised in Salinas. His interest in gems started when walking along the coast collecting jade and other stones with his aunt who had a shop on Cannery Row. This led to an interest in jewelry. He now loves making jewelry as it offers him a joyful, peaceful and satisfying experience. After taking numerous jewelry making classes, he joined the Salinas Valley Art Gallery four years ago.
Being of Cherokee heritage Kenny is particularly interested in making turquoise and sterling silver jewelry.
His other hobbies include making golf clubs and coaching softball.
