“Tim’s performance at the National Children’s Museum (National Harbor,
MD/DC Area) was truly a sight to behold! His energy, enthusiasm, and
unique charisma had audiences of ALL ages engaged! What made Tim’s
performance really original was the incorporation and participation of his
three sons! Tim is a family man who’s goal is to wake and energize the
imaginations of all children in a creatively musical way! His storytelling
