About the Author

Ken Brandt has led a fun and adventurous life and had a successful business career despite (or perhaps in part because of!) his bad eyes. He has always had poor vision and slightly crossed eyes. He has undergone six eye operations (including a detached retina and cataract operation in each eye), and spent parts of his life legally blind. Ken is an entertaining speaker and an amateur New Orleans-style jazz trumpeter. He and his wife, artist Judy Brandt, have been married for more than twenty years. They spent most of their lives in New York City, before moving to Melbourne, Australia. The savvy and very cool Elzy Kolb is the book's editor. She is a long-time New York-based freelance writer, editor and copy editor, and has worked for a spectrum of print and web publications including The New York Times, O - the Oprah Magazine, Rolling Stone, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Food & Wine, Psychology Today, Glamour, Popular Mechanics, and many others. She has been a Hot House (New York's premier jazz guide) contributing writer since 2003 and is now its contributing editor. Judy Roberts Brandt designed the book cover, interior of the book, and created much of the photography. She has a lifetime of art direction, visual design, and graphic design expertise encompassing commercial and fine art. Her commercial work includes advertising and marketing campaigns, corporate branding and logos, promotional materials, TV commercials, short films, websites, and all types of printed materials. Her clients have included large firms such as American Express, UBS, KPMG, etc., as well as government agencies, many small-medium size firms, and start-ups. Her fine art - largely abstract photography: stills, videos, and large scale projections - has been exhibited in Melbourne, Australia and New York City, U.S.A.
