Raised in the corn fields of Indiana, Truett studied Linguistics at Gordon College, just north of Boston, before moving to northern Spain. After a year of playing soccer and enjoying the cuisine, language, beaches, and mountains of the Basque region, 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 department at Laudisi in Spring 2018 and now serves as the department's manager, facilitating the data entry, photography, and copywriting teams, while also writing newsletters and contributing to Smokingpipes' Daily Reader. Along with collecting pipes, Truett enjoys playing soccer and following the English Premier League (Glory Glory Man United), solving crossword puzzles, practicing guitar and chess, reading fantasy and sci-fi novels, spending time outdoors, and going to the cinema by himself.
