He is the creator of the Tales From The Lounge and Dragon Days web-comics and his independant film work includes the movies The Clown, Last Time She Lived and Furor.
Troy was born and grew up in Staffordshire. His interest in films grew from an early age, influenced by seeing Star Wars:A New Hope when he was nine and from the stories his Great-Uncle would tell him about classic monster movies like King Kong and Dracula.
Troy has a background in art and theatre and trained as a Make-up artist - the prospectus for the course excited him and he lost no time in learning the skills which also included photography, costume and wig-making. Troy is fully versed in every aspect of make-up from face painting to HD film work. As an actor Troy has found himself working opposite his own make-up creations on several occasions.
As an artist Troy has produced work as diverse as web-comics, fine art, watercolours, graffiti and theatrical sets and he considers make-up to be an extension of that artwork using the human form as the canvas.
Troy published his first story Monsters Are Real in the eZine 13 Human Souls and has since gone on to write and publish several short stories.
Troy divides his time between his passion for his artwork, writing, acting, make-up, playing guitar and spending time with his three children, he can be found playing Black-Ops and HALO with his girlfriend and lives in Staffordshire with his crazy dog Theo.
