Troy is a former football player whose friends and family made fun of him until they realized he was following his dream to become a successful beauty makeup artist. Self-taught in the area of SFX, Troy learned his craft from DVDs, videos and books, and took his inspiration from the legendary Dick Smith. His dad was the one who introduced him to SFX and he used his mom as his first test subject. Troy is most comfortable using gelatin, silicone, and latex but he wants to grow into the industry and learn more. Troy's biggest claims to fame to date is that he did Madonna's dancers  make up for this year's Super Bowl, and that he placed second at the Face2Face makeup competition.
