TJ recently relocated from his childhood home in Sturgis, Michigan to the mountains of Colorado. He has been active in both athletics and working within communities his whole life. Studying Secondary Education at the University of Michigan, with an emphasis on Mathematics and Spanish, TJ spent much of his time instructing youth, both in the classroom and on the climbing wall. When he wasn’t reading or planning lessons he spent his time at Planet Rock in Ann Arbor, MI coaching the climbing team and instructing all ages and abilities in the art of rock climbing.
TJ has been climbing for 8 years and is psyched on all types of climbing but prefers to plug gear and kick it “old skool”. He honed his climbing skills on the bullet-hard sandstone of the Red River Gorge in Kentucky and New River Gorge in West Virginia….which is why he loves the sandstone monoliths of Red Rocks, NV.
TJ is new to KMAC this year and is excited to create and share memorable experiences with you!
