Kenn Kitchen

Founder, CEO, and WordPress Site Reliability Engineer

Kenn has 30+ years in enterprise IT, and while he loves to develop, his real forte is in the architecture of complex systems. He's an expert with LAMP/LEMP, Docker, Linux, and deploying with AWS and Digital Ocean.

We Are KMD Enterprises.

We’re a company founded not by people who wanted to get rich but who instead were the best of friends, who happened to be nerds (really good nerds) and who wanted to keep working together.

It takes something special to make a nerd… nerds get into things on a really intense level and just won’t let go.

It takes something even more special to make a team… not only do skill-sets need to compliment, but there needs to be a level of caring and friendship that transcends ego and makes differences something to embrace rather than ignore.

This is the kind of team you want on your side, and we’ll be more than happy to show you why.
