Troy's career started at an early age in his Aunt Violet's Salon "The Empress" in South Tampa's Iconic Carriage Trade Plaza. He often watched her work and thought… "I can do that!"


After studying Art History at Florida State University, he returned to Tampa and attended Barber School. He then undertook Beauty School, ironically, under the tutelage of his Aunt Violet.


A fascination with English hairdressing led him to job as an educator for the prestigious Jingles International School, first in New York City, then London, England.


He has held the titles of John Paul Mitchell Systems Senior Associate/Regional Chemical Tech, Jacobson's Salon Creative Director, and was a staff member of the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue.


Continuing his education, Troy has completed ongoing training with L'Oreal and the Goldwell Institute in Vienna, Austria.


Inspired by music and the arts, he has had published works in Paul Mitchell Calendar, Home Shopping Magazine and local Tampa Bay magazines.


An utter love of fashion has led Troy to work backstage for fashion shows of The International Academy, St. John, and Dara Lauria.

His video work includes Marie Claire's Runway to Realway, Adrien Arpel and Dillards. Additionally, he has been featured on the television shows EXTRA! and Good Day Tampa Bay.


Troy’s philosophy has always been… “Anyone can have any hair they want - as long as it's done well… Style fades, but good taste is timeless."

Troy has been doing my hair for the past 10 years and I have always been happy with his work. Even though I live 3 states away I make trips back to Tampa to have him do my hair. Troy is the best.
