Ken is Navigate’s co-founder. Formerly as Creative Director of II BY IV Design, he was involved in over 150 major projects, while overseeing the growth of the studio.

Ken’s vision of design transcends interiors and becomes a multi-layered environment that seductively creates superlative customer experiences.

Together with his love of travel, this led to Navigate’s design philosophy that selectively integrates anything from eclectic cultural nuances to mainstream design trends. It’s a philosophy that brings global inspiration to local destinations in a strategic collaboration that gives clients the best of all worlds, and customers a great experience.

As a successful engineer earlier in his career, the discipline and structure of engineering are reflected in the critical thinking and design management he applies to design. His work is methodical, agile and meticulous.
