About Ken O’Brien – “Who Knew?”
Who Knew is Ken’s side biz. It stemmed from people he would work with that didn’t really know or understand his creative background: “Who knew you could do that?” “Who knew you knew how to do that?” Who knew you…” He loves it! He lives it! It’s where he lives in a world that is visual, creative, design driven and sheer bliss. It is where anyone that needs anything creative “By Ken”, does. He stages, decorates, consults, wardrobes, shops, organizes, hosts, curates, promotes, reps, makes jewelry, makes lamps, creates, markets and is truly creative force.
When Ken’s not at his day job, he is at Mudd Lake Furniture doing staging/visuals, organizing and/or curating art events, working with Sue Whitney side by side at the “Junk Market/Flea Market Under Glass” creating amazing things.
