In 2019, TJ took his dancing to Provo, Utah where he became a member of the nation's leading Ballroom dance company at Brigham Young University where he competed and performed for 3 years. While at BYU, Tj became a finalist in U21 International Ballroom throughout the US and decided to focus primarily on International Standard and American Smooth dancing.
Aside from dancing, Tj also has an extensive background working with people with intellectual disabilities.
