I am here. For now.
My name is Tony Kuehn (“Keen”).
I’m a location independent designer currently traveling the world with my wonderful wife, Steph. We left Nashville, Tennessee in August of 2012 and haven’t looked back since.
I’m not from around here.
I grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. When I turned 18 I left for college in Tennessee, where I majored in Graphic Design and minored in Photography. After school I got a job working in Museum and Tradeshow design in Nashville. In 2007 I met my wife, Steph. As she finished her PhD, we began to think about what our future would look like, and not just what, but where it would be. We had two obvious choices, seeing as she is Canadian and I’m from the US, but first we wanted to see some of the rest of the world before settling down. A planned three-week trip after her defense turned into a 6 week trip, which turned into 3 months which turned into “why not a year” which, once we were on the road, turned into “why not forever?” and here we are.
I do web design.
I have extensive experience working with the WordPress framework as a developer and designer. I can code PHP and JQuery, and build themes from scratch. I am capable of providing a completely custom site, including backend modifications, that can meet any requirements you may have, all on the extremely user-friendly WordPress framework.
I do visual design.
I’ve been a designer for the last 10 years, working on everything from print to web to three-dimensional industrial design. Before that I was a professional photographer, shooting mostly weddings, portraits and food. I also did some pet photography and some product photography and quite enjoyed both. Prior to leaving on our trip, I was focusing on museum experiential design, which is a fancy way of saying “the things you see and interact with when you visit a museum.”
