His unique skill set has helped millions of people to get "unstuck" and excel in sports, business, and life. Ken makes the good become great and the great become unstoppable.


Ken created The Mental Edge program over two decades ago, leading the revolution of Performance Psychology.  He specializes in the training and development of individuals, businesses, and teams. He continues to evolve and grow in his career and is personally driven to provide the best mental coaching and training in the world.  


As a student, Ken received a C in High School English and had an intense fear of public speaking.  Despite these early limitations, he has written four different books, all from major publishers, and become an accomplished speaker. His first book was, "The Mental Edge" (Perigee) followed by "Metabolize" (Putnam), then "Mind Over Business" (Prentice Hall) and soon to be released, "The Mental Edge for Teens" (Prentice Hall). He has presented over 1,200 speeches to worldwide audiences, ranging from a 20-minute keynote address, to full day meetings and multiple day workshops. He has written and produced for TV, provided sports commentary for shows like Inside MMA, and hosted numerous documentaries. 


Ken lives it! From laborer and construction worker to accomplished and award-winning salesperson and manager, Vice President, entrepreneur and leading business trainer. He changed careers, educated and willed himself into one of the most recognized and effective Sports Psychology trainers in the world. Both of his children, undersized for their sport, earned full scholarships and had solid college careers.  The mental edge works!


He is an athlete. A lifetime athlete with a passion for all sports he had his athletic dreams derailed after his best friend's suicide in High School. This tragic event drove his interest in Psychology and fueled a passion, as "he turned the loss into a gain." Today he holds multiple Black Belts in three different Martial Arts styles, surfs, rock climbs, is an accomplished mountaineer, trains in various physical disciplines and is determined to be a lifelong athlete. Walking the talk gives him credibility and helps him understand and keep in touch with his clients. 


World Class Results happen! His client list reads like a who's who in sports and business and his 60 World, Olympic and National Champions are the testimony to his Mental Edge System deserving of the Gold!.
