In 1988, at the age of fifteen, Ken decided to travel overseas.

Ken wouldn’t return to Africa for another two years. This is where he met the love of his life, Joanna; who was from the Ukraine (Soviet Union at the time). The couple were married in 1993 and three years later welcomed their only daughter, beautiful Tatiana, who today is - amongst many other talents - head of her own philanthropic organization, an African ballroom dancing champion, and “the youngest book writer in Zimbabwe” having written “The Lonely Tiger” – a children’s book.
