Renee grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia in a haunted house. She spent her childhood hiding under the covers, too scared to see what was looming over her. She attended Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and graduated with a BFA in toy design. During her college years, she became fascinated with folklore, which lead her to start collecting ghost stories. In 2007, she moved to Bisbee, Arizona, and started the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour. Soon after, she started her second successful business Sweet Midnight, selling products "on the darker side of cute." The Bisbee Chamber of Commerce awarded Renee the title of The Official Ambassador to the Ghosts and Spirits of Bisbee for her work in preserving the local ghost stories and their rich history. Renee resides in Bisbee with her menagerie of pets and her hubby.
