My father and I were home haunters for 8 years and the dream of opening a professional attraction has always been on the back burner. I began college for both graphic & creature/industrial design, ended up with a BA in Marketing. Started my own mobile auto detailing business in May 2010, picked up and left Buffalo, NY to Phoenix, AZ in October 2010 after a year and a half of job searching, realizing I did not want to work for an ad agency or any 9-5 job. After attending The Nest haunted house here in Phoenix that October I knew I had to come full circle back to what I was passionate about. I met my father in St. Louis and we attended the Trans World show March 2011 for the first time where I realized then and there I was born to be a part of the haunt industry. District of the Dead's first season was launched in Buffalo, NY October 2011 where our haunt continues to operate today. I reside in Scottsdale, AZ with my younger brother in the off-season and continue mobile auto detailing.
