George has been in the entertainment industry for over 26 years as a stuntman, actor, set builder and show producer. A general contractor by trade for the past twenty years, he built first haunted house in 1999 for Rawhide Western Town. Since then, George has been involved in six major haunted attractions throughout Arizona. George has performed in thousands of shows, multiple high falls and produced live action stunt shows all over the world. George is now bringing his experiences from abroad to Globe.
Starting back in my youth, the designing and building of haunted houses was something I truly enjoyed. My past theme park experiences, starting at Disneyland thru Rawhide gave me great interaction with guests, and creating environmental decor experiences for the young and old alike. Years of writing, producing and acting in live shows, events, and parades put me up-close and personal to large and small crowds. Additionally, I worked closely with clients to achieve the desired product. Resulting with ultimate scares and themed entertainment venues for the public. Understanding that, the set alone and these creative environments are less without the one on one actor interaction with the guest. My insistence of inserting live talent into these attractions result in the best haunted house or attraction. I create memories that last a lifetime and keep the public coming back for more. That is what it’s all about.
