About Ken

Ken “Professor Glick” Glickman born profoundly deaf, attended Clarke School for the Deaf in his native state of Massachusetts for 11 years. After graduating from Dartmouth College magna cum laude with High Distinction in Psychology in 1977, he joined IBM as a computer programmer and has taught programming and computer graphics at NTID at RIT (1980-81) and at Gallaudet University (1985-86) under IBM's Faculty Loan Program. Ken left IBM in 1987 to go into the business world on his own, setting up his shop called DEAFinitely Yours Studio in Silver Spring, Maryland, where he currently lives.

Author of two humor books on Deaf Culture, DEAFinitions (1986) and More DEAFinitions! (1989) and the highly popular "DEAFinitions" and "Play It by Ear" posters, Ken also wears a few other hats. He is, at times, an author, a desktop publisher, a webmaster, a poet, a magician specializing in Close-Up magic (having won 1st place in Leipzig, East Germany in 1990 and 2nd place in Kiev, Ukraine in 1992), a wordsmith and a comedian as "Prof. Glick" teaching DEAFology 101, 201 and 301.

Ken has recently published his third book, Deaf Proverbs - A Proverbial Professor's Points to Ponder. He has written his third and fourth volumes of DEAFinitions and hopes to have them published in the near future.

About the “DEAFinitely Yours Studio”

My studio is modest. There's this old table I use as an anvil. Spread about are papers and small tools. Words first germinate in my mind. With a piece of paper atop the anvil and pen in hand, the word is created right there and then. More often than not, the word is coarse and needs more hammering. It's quite amazing how much one can do with a mere twenty six letters of the alphabet let alone all those other special symbols. Words are, fortunately, very malleable. That's why I've had so much fun with them.

Papers make wonderful media with which to carry the fragile words everywhere. Soon after a word is formed on paper, I carry this paper container from the anvil to my electronic fire for further refining. Computers make marvelous machines, and I can't imagine how wordsmiths of by one times actually managed without them. Once the word reaches its desired form, I take it from the fire to the quenching bucket in an instant. Often known as a laser printer, the bucket freezes the word for the final casting.

Such is my modest studio. It is where your friendly wordsmith happily churns out new humorous creations day after day and sees them off to that wonderful, majestic world of DEAFIES, smiling at the very thought that "humor does make the world go around."
