The son of parents with international careers, TJ first moved to Eastern Europe in 2000 and then Western Europe in 2009. He often joked with his peers at Baylor University that moving to America was his “study abroad” experience. At Baylor, he double majored in Russian Language and Digital Media Studies. TJ, an SRAS graduate (St. Petersburg, 2020), joined our team in 2022. Now in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, TJ assists students and facilitates and enhances our programs in Central Asia. When not working, you can find him camping, restoring computers, or singing impromptu around the house.
