Mr. KKM

Who is KKM?

My name is Kenny K. Mercado, and I don't only represent Hawaii but all of Polynesia.

Mission

Goals

To me, sharing my goals with you is very important so you know how much I appreciate your support to me. Every order counts and I wish I can get to know all of you and show you guys how much I appreciate all of you.

To start off I don’t have any financial goals because I don’t do it for the money, I do it for the passion. Although I do wish to stay in Hawaii. I hope to see the things I design everywhere, where the people know who owns the design but not the designer. One of my biggest goals is to retire my parents so they can enjoy themselves on a beach in the Bahamas or something. My parents made me the man that I am today and I wouldn’t be here without them.¬†

Hometown

Early Days

Born and raised on the Island of Maui, living wasn’t easy. Hawaii in general is expensive when it comes to everything you need. Living poor only made you smarter, more resourceful, and more adventurous. To be honest, I was a troublemaker, but the older I got the more humble I was. At my pre-school graduation, everyone said what they wanted to be when I grow up. I said, “I want to be a painter like my dad.” My dad wasn’t a painter so that goal is something I had to learn on my own. In elementary I was honored to have my painting in an art center in Hawaii. The painting was decent but the story behind it was better. That’s when I realized¬† I loved to make art that has a meaning behind it.

Years of Adventure

Pre-Adult Days

In intermediate took one art class but didn’t feel like entering any contest at the time, but at the same time, I was into drawing graffiti and putting typography on people’s binders. From ages 7-17, I played almost every single sport. The sport I fell in love with is the game of football. I was busy playing football and I thought football was a more realistic goal. In high school i edited people’s photos, especially football pictures. This goes all the way til senior year when I finally signed up for an art class. At the time I signed up for it only because I needed the credit to graduate. When. classes first started I didn’t think I would be any good so I didn’t try as hard. Somehow someway my drawings and sculptures were some of the best out of the classes. One of my drawing was entered by my teacher into the the local county fair.

Years of Realization

Adult Days

After high school, I enrolled in the local college and took up classes. Money was a problem because I didn’t take high school seriously. The only classes I got As in were anything physical, art, and math. I had 2 scholarships for being Hawaiian but after those scholarships were up I had to drop out. I have worked quite a few jobs and learned more things than I learned throughout my whole school career. In the end, my side jobs have always been something I look forward to. Photography, video editing, photo editing, drawing, designing, all that good stuff. I’m glad I started this business because I hope to do this for the rest of my life.

All For You

Let's Do This Together

My life has had a lot of ups and downs but it all led me to be right here talking to you. I would like to say thank you, your support is much appreciated. I can’t wait to start working with all of you guys and I hope that all of your businesses or companies are successful.¬†
