Johnathon, a married father of 4, has been in the entertainment and décor industry since 2002. He attributes all success in this business to his faith in Jesus Christ and His willingness to follow the path he feels God has set before him. Following this path has afforded him the ability to buy out an entertainment company that he was a subcontractor for, to purchase 3 other decorating companies, and to be surrounded by many talented and highly skilled individuals who make this company work so well. Feeling that running Twisted Artz LLC and Party People Events is what God has called him to do, he works hard to help this company be one of excellence and something that brings glory to God.
Fun Fact: As a child, Johnathon wanted to grow up to be a wrestling superstar or an artist.

Tiara started her career in entertainment in 2009 and learned very quickly that she was great at it. She moved to Orlando in 2011 and started working outside of the entertainment industry finding it boring and unfulfilling. In 2013, Tiara began working with Twisted Artz LLC and was thrilled to return the world of balloon art, quitting her other job. Since then, she had the opportunity to expand her skills by working at a local Party Store where she learned to create larger and more creative décor items. Tiara became a crew leader in 2014 and is excited to use those decor skills full time with Party People Events.
Fun Fact: Tiara is terrified of balloons popping!
