I like to pursue personal creative projects when I am not designing, organizing, educating, or speaking.

Halloween Aficionado

Ken Tanabe Halloween Costume 2010

Every year I enjoy making (and wearing) Halloween costumes that follow a set of Halloween Rules I created. The rules are a way to avoid the worn-out Halloween routine: “I paid too much to dress up as a sexy dead version of that person from that thing.”

Halloween Costumes

Independent Musician

I compose, produce, and perform original music with acoustic and electronic elements. My primary tools are digital, though I also sing and play a few instruments (primarily guitar and drums).

Back in the day, I performed and recorded in indie bands and came dangerously close to majoring in music. I have scored some of the motion graphics pieces I designed and animated. Listen for free on this page or via Soundcloud.
