Ken began teaching with the IAA in 2008 after 30 years of industry experience with turf, grounds, and golf course management. He is a Certified Golf Course Superintendent (GCSAA) and one of only 64 Master Greenkeepers (BIGGA) in the world. He holds a B.S and M.S. from the University of Maryland, but started his education and career with a two-year program much like the IAA. His focus now is in Arboriculture, Ornamental Horticulture, and Landscape Management.
