Nick Loren

President/Author

Nick has spent twenty plus years in the entertainment industries. His career was kick-started when he landed a job as personal stunt double for esteemed actor John Travolta. Nick’s daring antics made possible many of the breathtaking action scenes in some of Travolta’s most iconic films.  Nick was also acting in roles of his own, and he took on numerous film and television projects on both sides of the camera. He was nominated for an Emmy for his work as host of NBC's "First Coast Living," and his musical talent earned him a Top 10 radio hit in 2009. Through it all, Nick could never shake a deep rooted love for reading and helping children. Inspired by a cuddly character concocted by his son, Nick developed a series of fun and rhythmic books about a character named Farful Foolong. The Farful project took on a life of its own, garnering praise from the wife of the late Dr. Seuss and inspiring a literacy non-profit organization. In his downtime, Nick’s favorite things to do include playing with his three children, Tysan, Nikoli, and Destiny, and spending time with his beloved wife and business partner, Denise, whether they’re brainstorming new projects or just hanging out.
