Coreys life long fascination with make-up and special make-up effects began in early childhood when his father, a classic horror movie fan, would tell him stories of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and most importantly Lon Chaney Man of a Thousand Faces. Things only got worse when a perfect combination of events took place. Coreys dad took him to see a revival showing of the Lon Chaney bio-pic, "Man of a Thousand Faces" and a few short months later attended a drive-in showing of Planet of the Apes. It was at that time Corey decided that THAT was what he wanted to do. He made his first mask by the age of ten (Based on Planet of the Apes) and by age twelve he was happily scaring and horrifying people at the hospital where his mother worked as a nurse. His passion for make-up continued to grow until he embraced a full fledged career in make-up which continues to this day.
