I am a special effects makeup artist and have been for more than ten years. I started with character makeups for a live action role playing game in western Massachusetts and just started evolving from there. Most of my background is in haunted attractions, I was fortunate to live in Salem, MA for a number of years working the haunts and the rest of the tourist trade. I just love making things, changing a person's appearance or creating a fantastic injury effect. One has to do what makes them happy and for me that's makeup effects.
