Kenton can make or fix just about anything. The high school he attended had low standards – students were only expected to be able to create machine tools, draft architectural drawings using pencils, install electrical wiring, repair a gasoline engine, create ductwork, set type for printing, frame a wall, and still be able to read, write, and figure to graduate. He believes in forging connections between the work of the mind and the work of the hands, in encouraging design-thinking in students, and that age is only a barrier in that you don't know what you don't know.
Kenton has programmed computers since 1974, done computer communications since 1979, and crafted internet technologies since 1987. He has extensive network construction and operations experience, including managing Cisco Systems's global network. He has worked as a software developer on multiple programs as well as in game design. He is as experienced in network and system security, as well as security policy, as shown by his work with Sony PlayStation, @stake and Symantec. He also served as CISO for Los Angeles World Airports, providing the security for Los Angeles International, Ontario and Van Nyes Airports, and has was as a security advisor in Australia for TELSTRA's NextGen committee.
In addition to his technology work, Kenton has worked in Adult Education since 1992, largely doing Trainer-Training.
Kenton has worked and taught at Tehiyah since 2014. He has a wife, Andrea Nemerson, often found around campus working as a substitute or volunteer, and two children in Sixth Grade, Lilah and Avi.
