Casey "Treat Daddy" Treat Bio
Casey Treat, Co Owner of Mad Tatter Studios grew up in East Tennessee and spent his teenage years as a juggler and fire eater on stage in local theaters. When he turned 18 he decided to move to Charlotte, NC to pursue a career in NASCAR. Four months after being in Charlotte he got his chance and landed a job in the Engine Shop of Roush/Yates racing. After a year into his career at Roush/Yates he worked his way into a position to become a tire changer, 2 years later his team won the Nextel Cup Championship. Shortly after winning the Championship Casey found that he was lacking the drive to continue in the sport and that he wanted a new challenge. After a year of planning to open a Body Art Studio back home in Pigeon Forge he met two talented artist, Martin "Hollywood" Shaw and Jared and it was at that moment that he knew that his wolf pack would grow.
"You guys might not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one man wolf pack. But when I met Martin and Jared, I knew they were one of my own. And my wolf pack, it grew by two. So there... there were three of us in the wolf pack. I was alone first in the pack and Martin and Jared joined in later. And six months ago, when I met you guys I thought "wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Three of us wolves"
Chronicles 17:25 You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you. 26 You, LORD, are God! You have promised these good things to your servant. 27 Now you have been pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, LORD, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever.
