Kenneth Azurin


Kenneth Arias Azurin was born on July 7th, 1984 in Los Angeles, California.

With a bachelor’s degree in English focusing on Humanities and Law from the University of California, Irvine, he’s contributed his writing to companies such as CJ Consulting, Inc., Pointy Shoe Productions, V/S Communications and the reinvented Ask.com.

Kenneth’s most recent endeavors required an injection of marketing know-how in order to lend a writing hand to startups and creative institutions such as Essential-Watches.com, Coin-Op.TV, ZipRecruiter, Gallery Nucleus, the UCLA Art|Sci Center, and the Last Bookstore.

While writing is his craft, it isn’t the only thing Kenneth is passionate about. Illustration, graphic design, travel and photography have long been cornerstones of his creative drive.

The resulting work-in-progress is a uniquely talented professional who might best be described as a Literary Cartographer.
