He lives in the city with Anna Veyna, “who, besides being the love of my life, is also the designer of my restaurants.” When not working or spending time with Anna and their dog and three cats, Kenny serves as president of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, plays guitar, and travels.

He welcomes contact from classmates at firstname.lastname@example.org.

She will hit the job-search trail soon.
