KEN HARRSION - Composer / Conductor

Beginning in 1979, Ken enjoyed a 23-year career writing music for TV and Film in Hollywood. For Ken’s first orchestration, he was given a simple one-line melody with chord symbols, and asked to orchestrate it for a full orchestra. It was 60 seconds long – and the instructions were to make it sound “big and western.” Ken discovered after the recording that it was the theme song for “Dallas”, a show that ran for the next 11 years! Quite an incentive for a young, enthusiastic musician.  Thus beginning a great success story: “Fantasy Island” was Ken’s first series followed by many others most notably McGyver, and Melrose Place. He visited Washington State numerous times during that period, working out of Vancouver B.C. and establishing his company Hollywood North Music. Ken learned to appreciate the beauty of this region. So when Hollywood took a turn for the worse, Ken soon realized moving his family to the Pacific Northwest in 1992 was the best decision he could have made.

 

Ken entered the real estate business in 2004 and within his first year received Coldwell Banker’s Sterling Society Award for the top 17% of agents world wide. Launching BellinghamWOW.com that same year Ken pioneered blending his experience in technology with real estate marketing.  He has consistently been a recipient of Coldwell Banker’s President’s Circle award placing him in the top 2% of agents internationally. Ken was also voted Whatcom County’s Realtor of the Year in 2014.

KEN HARRISON - Hiker / Outdoor Enthusiast

Ah yes. Then there is the outdoors. I am convinced the North Cascades has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world . . . validated by friends and clients who have join me and who have lived all over the world. My love of hiking and the joy I receive from sharing our local beauty inspired me to form BOOMERS HIKING CLUB in 2002. We hike each week during the season from lower BC to the Seattle area and everywhere in between. My club consists of a great group of friends, colleagues and clients ranging in ages from 28 to 72 years old. During the winter months we venture out for some local snowshoeing or skiing. Visit our BOOMERS web site and view photos and videos of some of our adventures.
