Ken Spivey is also the founder and driving force behind the Time Lord Fest conventions which have thus far taken place in Tampa, Orlando, and Atlanta. The Time Lord Fests are quickly becoming the largest Doctor Who conventions in the state of Florida, with each convention drawing between 360 and 800 attendees.
In addition Ken has sat on or led numerous Doctor Who related panels at conventions all over the southeastern US where he synthesizes his academic background in Gender Theory, Sexuality, and Romantic Relationships in the Ancient and Modern World with the spheres of pop culture and science fiction.

After college, he played “snob rock” on the country club circuit and country music on the “animal circuit” (i.e. Elks, Moose, etc.). During the first part of the past decade, he performed with and directed the inspirational rock band, “Just Cause,” with his son.
