Born in Dallas, TX but raised in England, Arkansas, and (most extensively) the corn fields of Indiana, Truett studied Linguistics at Gordon College, just north of Boston before moving to the Basque Country of Northern Spain. After spending a year playing soccer, studying the Basque language (as well as honing his Spanish), enjoying Basque cider and cuisine, basking on the beach, and meandering in the mountains, he decided it was finally time to get on with his life, leading him to Laudisi. An avid pipe smoker and patron of Smokingpipes, Truett joined the merchandizing team at Laudisi as a Junior Copywriter, merging both his professional and pastime interests. Along with collecting pipes, Truett enjoys playing and watching soccer, solving crossword puzzles, playing guitar and chess, reading fantasy and sci-fi, spending time outdoors, and watching movies. It has also been said that BBQ is his love language.
