TJ attended college in Greensboro, North Carolina where he received a BFA in acting and then an MFA in directing from Western Illinois University. Most recently, he spent the last two decades in Montana, where he worked extensively with the Missoula Children's Theatre. After selling their home in October of 2014, TJ and his family bought a vintage travel trailer and experienced the country before landing here in Wisconsin last June. TJ is thrilled to be working with the Lamar Community Center and all the fine folks associated with it.
