I’m Kern Campbell, the founder, and tech nerd behind The Gadget Buyer.

For many years I wrote under the pen name “Ken Cameron” because I had a public job when I launched The Gadget Buyer. After a story was written about me by Pfeiffer University, everything is out in the open now, so I no longer feel like a need to use a pen name.

I’m glad you found me! I live in North Carolina with my wife and two teenage kids.

Beyond where I’m from, what I am most known for is my passion for technology and especially consumer electronics (aka Gadgets). I have always been the guy everyone goes to for help figuring out how to work their technology gear.

This passion for tech led me to get a Batchelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems and Marketing from Appalachian State University. I later went on to graduate school and earned my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Pfieffer University.

After school, I gained a lot of hands-on experience working for the world’s largest privately owned software company which focused on business intelligence software.

During my time in the corporate world, I had the urge to start a website as a way to help people and help fuel my passion for tech. As a result, I went out and bought over $3,000 worth of Bluetooth portable speakers to figure out what the very best speaker was for my needs.

Expert Tip:

My favorite is the JBL Boombox 2, but my wife isn’t sold on it. You can read a full write-up on what I liked and what she didn’t like here –> Real world JBL Boombox 2 Review

As a result, I launched TheGadgetBuyer.com as a means to share what I have learned and to help others. I never imagined it would turn into the size business it has, but thanks to people like you who come and read my content, it has become my family’s primary source of income. For readers like you, I am truly grateful!

What You Will Find On The Gadget Buyer:

My passion for technology goes way beyond my passion for Bluetooth speakers. I always have to check out the latest technology and help everyone of my friends and family with tech advice regarding FitBits, iPhones, iPads, AirPods, smart devices, and more. If it’s a gadget, chances are I have played with it and can help you figure out what’s wrong or why it’s not working the way you expect it to work.
