About Adam & Adam Swartz Puppets
"When I was a kid, I was inspired to spend the rest of my life inspiring other people; to educate and entertain. It is my goal to reach as many people as I can, to encourage them to use their imaginations, to be creative, and to open their minds to learning and doing good things in the world. I hope that each time I interact with an audience or work with someone new, we are all making connections and helping each other to think, learn, grow, create, and inspire others todo the same.
