As a co-star on television, he has made appearances on Lost, Cold Case, Strong Medicine and the Wayan's.  He has travelled the U.S. with the national tour of The Exonerated, where he originated the role of Robert Hayes, in which the Los Angeles Times claimed the production, "...a riveting Actorsʻ Gang staging examining capital punishment and the justice system in chilling terms." He also originated the role of Ned in Batboy, the Musical, which eventually went to Broadway.

Ken's membership in Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and Actor's Equity Association, combined with his professional training and experience over the past 25 years, has prepared him to share his knowledge of exploring the "Power of the Voice" through the heightened emotional states of Happiness, Sadness, Fear and Anger.

She was also a member of Hawaiian Ensemble (hula) & Concert Glee Club (singing) her sophomore, junior and senior years, where she was the alakaʻi or line captain for both groups her senior year. Kaʻena was fortunate to travel to Waikoloa, Aotearoa, Tahiti and Rapa Nui as a student while at Kamehameha Schools.
