An eye for excellence
Ken has a passion for photography, which helped create his vision to capture, focus and zoom in on a business client’s needs. In photography, “aperture” refers to the opening in a camera lens that lets in just the right amount of light. He named his new company Aperture IT Services to reflect his photo passion and his desire to use a fresh set of eyes to solve the client’s challenges.
