Our model RT Valine was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to East Los Angeles in 1998. There he met his wife Jacqueline Castillo while teaching mural painting in Pasadena. Jacqueline was born in Puerto Barrios, Guatemala and moved to the United States in 1980. She currently coordinates after school programs in Pasadena. She is an avid seamstress and gardener and raises goats and chickens with RT on their small farm in East LA.

In 2009 RT started the band RT N’ THE 44s w/ Brendan Willard and “Swimmy” Webb using handcrafted and salvaged instruments to perform dark cowboy ballads. The band has since released 7 studio albums and one compilation album. They perform weekly around downtown Los Angeles and the greater LA area.
