Ken Lopez
Ken is a lifelong entrepreneur and collector of history.

While attending the Delaware Law School in the early 1990s, Ken taught himself computer animation as a hobby. It was that hobby, combined with his law degree and a degree in economics from the University of Mary Washington that helped launch his career of entrepreneurship.

In 1995, he founded his first company, A2L Consulting, where he served as its Founder/CEO for 25 years. A2L provided trial support services to all of the nation’s top law firms and their clients around the world. Often called upon when the dollars at stake are high, A2L’s services included helping to predict how judges and juries will react to a case, the creation of sophisticated visual evidence used to persuade judges and juries, and the deployment and use of state-of-the-art technology and technology consultants in the courtroom.

Bestselling business author Dan Pink highlighted A2L in his book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, and Ken has been quoted by many news outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Inc., NBC News, Wired, the Washington Post, and the BBC.

In 2013, Virginia’s Governor appointed Ken to a four-year term on the University of Mary Washington’s Board of Visitors. He has also served on the Dean’s National Advisory Board of Delaware Law School and a variety of local and business boards and advisory groups.

After a stroke in 2020 ended his litigation consulting career, Ken founded OurHistoryMuseum. He combined his passion for history, his collection of artifacts related to Alexandria Virginia, and his entrepreneurial spirit to found what will become the world's largest virtual history museum.

In spite of an interesting and varied career, Ken still lists his top passion and proudest accomplishment as father of triplet girls born in 2008.
