Bio:

Ken Isaacson has been a practicing attorney for almost thirty-five years. Born and raised in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, he grew up reading Jules Verne, H.G.

The US space program was in full swing during his childhood, and his fascination with space travel led him to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology upon graduation from Perth Amboy High School in 1971.

But as the famed philosopher John Lennon said “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans,” and for reasons still unclear to him, he decided to become a lawyer instead.
