TJ began shooting through his local 4-H Club and within a few years began shooting International Skeet.  Has showcased his ability to shoot mulitple disciplines well including most recently at the 2013 Junior Olympic Shooting Championships in which he earned national titles in Trap and Double Trap despite having a strong affinity for international skeet. He qualified for the Junior Men's Skeet and Junior Men's Trap Team at the 2011 World Clay Target Championship. TJ enjoys hunting waterfowl, fishing, and any other outdoor activities. Whether he is driving down the road or gearing up for a match, you'll find TJ listening to country and rock music.  The one piece of advice he'd give a junior shooter: "Always set your goals higher than what you believe is possible."
