Titanic Ulysses Sinclair (born Corey Michael Mixter) is an American singer-songwriter, actor, producer and director best known for working on the Poppy project. He is also a character in the Poppy universe.
Titanic was born on February 12th, 1987. During college, he and his friends would make short comedy videos on the websites iFunny, DigitalFunTown and FirstHourMovies before meeting his now-former musical partner and girlfriend Mars Argo (Brittany Sheets) on Myspace in early 2008. He moved to Chicago with her to later go by Titanic Sinclair.
Later on, after he and Mars broke up in January 2014, Titanic Sinclair worked with Moriah Pereira on the Poppy project.
Titanic has also released his own music. He has released three singles as well as two albums.
Outside of the Poppy and Mars Argo projects, Titanic has also directed several music videos, including "10,000 Emerald Pools" and "Electric Love" by Børns, "Got the Bite" and "My Leather, My Fur, My Nails" by Stepdad, and "Washed Up Together" by Knox Hamilton. He has also worked with the band Blame Candy, who he has directed many videos for.
His parents are Richard "Ric" Mixter and Sheila Moloney Mixter. His siblings are older sister Jamie Mixter Wren and younger brother Alexander Scott Mixter.
Relationship With Poppy
Moriah Pereira (Poppy) and Titanic initially met in early 2014 through a mutual friend. Moriah and Titanic later became good friends and worked together on projects and songs. As of January 2016, it could be possible that he and Moriah are dating behind the scenes as Debby Ryan posted a picture of Titanic and Poppy on her Snapchat story captioned "dream double date w the alternative power couple", but this has never been confirmed.
In the Poppy storyline, Titanic is often portrayed as Poppy's "puppetmaster". Poppy explained in an interview with NME: "The narrative that we created in order to tell the story of the first album was very much Titanic is the bad guy and he's the leader, which I think is funny because it's not true. It is very much 50:50, the effort."
