Kenton's experience includes entrepreneurial endeavours in landscaping and residential painting, to project managing for one of the largest restoration construction companies in Vancouver, and interning in the office of the Minister of Finance for the Government of Canada. Kenton's love for reading racked up 120 books in 2016. He and his wife live in Vancouver, B.C..
