The Enigma got his start as a member of the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow, with which he performed around the world until 1998, touring with acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Korn, Godsmack, and once opening for David Bowie. Rolling Stone magazine called the show an “absolute must-see act” and USA Today termed Rose’s troupe “Lollapalooza’s word-of-mouth hit attraction.”
The Enigma has appeared in a number of television programs including “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” and “The X-Files,” where he played a character called “the Conundrum,” loosely based upon himself. Palisade Toys later made a toy based on this character as part of their “X-Files” PALz action figure line. This character was also prominently featured on the “X-Files” pinball machine.
Additionally, The Enigma has been featured twice in National Geographic and was featured on the cover of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
He holds a Guinness World Record for his tattoos.
