Find products that fit. My name is Ken. I seek the Holy Grail of car audio excellence. My favorite color is blue. I came to Crutchfield in During my six years as a Crutchfield Advisor, I learned a lot about the technology behind great car and home audio. I learned even more about what people wanted in their car stereo systems. I've been a writer for car audio and fitness tech at Crutchfield since Over the last few years, I've also carved out a niche producing demo videos for our in-dash car stereos.

The hands-on experience I get with car stereos while doing video production is an invaluable aid to me in learning about their exciting features. This helps me convey that information to our customers when I write about the stereo on our website. Before coming to Crutchfield, I spent 10 years teaching music in Charlottesville area schools.

I keep my musical interests satisfied by volunteering as a classical music DJ at a local community radio station, and I stay up to date with the latest in outdoor tech by cycling, running, and backpacking. Fun facts: I've completed an Ironman triathlon, run the Boston Marathon, hiked miles of the Appalachian Trail, and lost on Jeopardy!
