About Ken

Ken Brandt has led a fun and adventurous life and had a successful business career despite (or perhaps in part because of!) his bad eyes. He has always had poor vision and slightly crossed eyes, had six eye operations (including a detached retina and cataract operation in each eye), and spent parts of his life legally blind.  

 

Prior to retiring and and writing Positive Vision: Enjoying the Adventures and Advantages of Poor Eyesight, Ken held senior management and management consulting positions in information technology and information security with firms and clients of all sizes in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.  Ken is an entertaining speaker and an amateur New Orleans style jazz trumpeter.   He and his wife Judy Roberts Brandt have been married for over twenty years, lived most of their lives in New York City, and now live in Melbourne, Australia.
