Gina Rose Barker - Planet Peek-A-Boo: Creator/ Developer 

Gina's passion for entertaining children began in 1986 when I was invited to join Disney On Ice as a professional ice skater. Her love for entertainment grew in the 14 years she spent with the show.  Within this time she had the opportunity to perform as many of the major Disney characters.

After 14 years, Gina stepped behind the scenes of live entertainment from skating and continued to learn many other facets of the business. Working  in positions as Performance Director, Show Promotions and Head Wardrobe for a variety of different shows. 

All her many experiences working in live entertainment and traveling around the world  has proven to be an invaluable learning experience.

Gina's creativity and love for entertaining, plus a strong desire to make a positive mark in the world  lead to the development of Planet Peek-A-Boo and all it's various divisions. 

After several years of development this project is ready to meet the world. Her vision and dream for the Planet Peek-A-Boo extends into a world of learning /games apps, family movies, children's television programming, live touring and stationary shows plus, whimsical merchandise of all kinds.

Allan "Sparky" Starks planted the seed for his program called IcanU in 2006 when he combined his artistry and passion for music technolgy with his commitment to young people. 

Sparks has more than 30 years of experience in the music industry, providing technical expertise for studio recordings and live performances for Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige, Prince, Beyonce, Gloria Estefan, Eminem, Foreigner, American Idol, and many more. While taking a hiatus from touring with musical acts, Sparky began teaching audio production to students in an after-school program. He immediately realized the positive impact the class had on the lives of his students. The class provided many students the outlet to express themselves and courage to explore their futures. 

Later down the road….

Gina and Sparky met while touring with Mary J Blige.  After much discussion Gina and Sparky realized the synergy of their two visions. Sparky with his musical experience and creative musical writting talents have joined forces with Gina. He is a full-time member of the Peek-A-Boo Crew.  Allan “Sparky” Starks is now writer,  producer and director of anything that has to do with music and sound for Planet Peek-A-Boo.
