MEET THE CREATIVE TEAM
DAVID ALLEN, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
David grew up listening to listening to the likes of The Ventures, The Rolling Stones, and Elvis, so the Flashback is like coming home. As a writer and performer, David has created musicals, written novels, and managed and played in bands. While, Flashback to Never isn't his first rodeo...it may be his best. Also, David is a snazzy dresser.
BRIAN JOHNSON, PRODUCER
Despite rumors to the contrary Brian Johnson, was not part of a time travel experiment to correct the historical mistake of VHS verses Betamax. What you should probably believe is he was born in Louisville, KY and has written short stories, screenplays, and even a novel. He's been playing music for years and still speaks with a southern accent if alcohol passes over his lips.
He currently resides in Bloomington with his fiancée and two monstrous cats.
TOM KENNING, HISTORIAN
Thomas Kenning is an author, educator, and adventurer. He has written extensively about Washington, DC, including in the recently published Abandoned Washington, DC. Mr. Kenning is the creator of the award-winning Openendedsocialstudies.org, a library of free lesson plans and travel writing designed to foster a sense of wonder about the world and our place in it. When he is not travelling to some far flung corner of the Earth, he resides with his wife and daughter (a DC native!) – planning his next improbable adventure and trying to leave the planet a little bit nicer than he found it.
BEN RARDIN, MUSICAL DIRECTOR
Ben Rardin received his bachelors of music degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and his master of music degree from the IU Jacob's School of Music. During all of those years of training, nobody taught him how to write a good bio. The third person thing is kind of fun though.
