The 188cm point guard attended Westlake Boys High School and has represented the New Zealand Tall Blacks multiple times.
In December 2008, Kenny signed with the Hawke's Bay Hawks for the 2009 New Zealand NBL season. From 2010 to 2013, he was part of the New Zealand Breakers practice squad and developed his all-round game to become one of the NZNBL's leading point guards, helping the Hawks to the 2011 final and the 2012 regular-season title. In December 2013, he re-signed with the Hawks on a two-year deal.
On December 29, 2014, Kenny signed with Licher BasketBären of the German ProB for the rest of the 2014–15 season. Despite Licher making the playoffs, Kenny left the team after appearing in just one quarter-final game and returned to New Zealand for the start of the 2015 New Zealand NBL season.
Kenny began playing for the New Zealand Junior Tall Blacks in 2002 and went on to represent the New Zealand university national team at the 2007 World University Championships in Bangkok. He made his senior team debut in 2009 at the FIBA Oceania Championship, going on to represent the Tall Blacks at the 2011 FIBA Oceania Championship, 2012 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament, 2013 FIBA Oceania Championship and 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
