MEET THE TEAM

Writer / Executive Producer:

Kenneth Thomas

At 13, Kenneth Thomas felt he had a story worth telling and began to write. He started writing music to escape the violence and racism that once plagued his town. Music would one day lead him to cities such as Atlanta, New York, Puerto Rico, and more. He worked with artists such as Money Harm of Product G&B to Puerto Rico, where he worked with reggaeton producer Bones of Mas Flow Inc.


Kenneth Thomas eventually decided that 3-minute-long songs did not give him enough time to tell the stories he was interested in. This feeling led him to try his hand at writing novels, short stories, and screenplays.


Kenneth Thomas is a masterful content and character creator, which showcase his engaging ability to be a standout storyteller.
