Ken guides readers through this world with the knowledge of an insider, with the goal of offering up a work of literary reportage that’s a nuanced portrait of coming of age, mistreatment, and redemption, as well as an incisive critique of this business that lies at the cross-section of the private health and prison industries.

His reporting he has won the Bayeux-Calvados Award for War Correspondents, an AWC Clarion Award for Online Feature Article, a Steven Sotloff Memorial 2Lives Foundation Security Training Scholarship and was a finalist for the Livingston Award, considered the Pulitzer Prizes for writers under 35-years-old.
