Personalized Story/Script Writer for Children’s Entertainment
With the ability to “rap” off the top of my head, combined with my years of writing scripts for TV, I’ve been asked for years to create silly songs, poems and books for people with kids. Whether their child has a gluten allergy and needs to hear from Ned the Gluten Free Bread or my poem book, currently being reviewed for publication, I combine strong story with dynamic characters to make kids laugh and learn at the same time.
