Born and raised in Puerto Rico, George Schminky was inspired to teach himself makeup at the age of 12. After watching the horror film "An American Werewolf in London," he instantly knew his connection to the makeup world would be long-lived. He honed his skills and craft through reading books about makeup effects and teaching himself every aspect of it.
George is a bona fide perfectionist who excels under pressure. Although he's a very hard critic of his own work, his persistent and tenacious personality give him the aggressive edge needed to compete.
