I, Garret Troop, am the CEO and Brain child of Sneaky Pete Mafia. I have a lot of really big goals here, but believe wholeheartedly in all of them. I believe in changing the the way pool is perceived by the world. I consider myself to be the person that will make a dream become a reality.Things are moving fast, and I want to be on the ever-competitive edge of all that we hold precious. in the billiards world.
Born and raised in the pool halls of Long Island is where I learned life. From the age I could see over the bumpers on Grandpa's old table, I've loved to play pool. Watching the balls bounce off bumpers, rolling balls to see natural bounces, I love the challenge it provides me to constantly seek to achieve perfection. Always having billiards in my world in some capacity, I began to draw seriously in 2020 when everyone locked down for Covid. I was never a serious artist, but this time I wanted to take it very seriously and see where it went. I found myself with an affinity and the odd skill set and style to start Pool Ball Art, now selling clothing, wall art, and man cave items for those of a billiard lifestyle. This venture leads me to meet Garret and Kat, the heart and soul (literally) of SPM Billiards Media. I have 20 years of marketing experience and 10 years of email marketing experience. I've worked for boat companies, medical schools, and the US Holocause Memorial Museum, but I was never home. I am the round peg who finally found my round hole. Now working as the Sales and Marketing Manager, my goal is to grow SPM as if its my job... cause it is..
