A trip to Orange County Choppers
What a coincidence. The day after I post a picture of me and my bike on Facebook, I get a call to go work at Orange County Choppers in New York. This was a CNBC shoot highlighting American Entrepreneurs. What a pleasure to go see the new headquarters, check out some of the one-of-a kind bikes and meet some of the OCC guys. Yup, I met Mikey! Paul Sr. is just as you would imagine. Authentic and driven. He was nice to me even though I was there to put make-up on him. He wasn't so keen on the idea, but as usual I used a light hand to cover any obvious problem spots for HD and all went well. No, he doesn't use make-up on the regular show! See their website at www.orangecountychoppers.com Paul Sr. just published a book called "The Ride of A Lifetime". It's going on my to read list. Another good day in the life of a CT make-up artist!
