About the Organizers
Doktor Kaboom is the creation of actor/comedian David Epley. David grew up expecting to be a research physicist…then a biomedical engineer, then a mathematician, an astrophysicist, a chemical engineer, a marine biologist. So, of course, he became an actor. For almost 30 years David has written, directed, and performed original comedy shows throughout the US, and around the world. By blending science and theatre his comedy has helped to teach, inspire and empower thousands of young people, while reminding parents to be an active part of the equation.
