T.J. is so excited to be returning to GRP for his second summer on the Preserve, this time as the Theatre Coordinator. Born and raised surrounded by fields and woods in West KY, T.J. spent a lot of time exploring and that desire to roam flourished even more while at camp last summer. Prior to 2020 T.J. worked as a professional actor, focusing in educational children’s Theatre, teaching and performing for thousands of kids across the Eastern half of the US. Now, he is a full-time elementary school Behavior Resource Teacher working with kiddos who have emotional and behavioral disorders and he’s always trying to find ways to incorporate the natural world into the classroom. T.J. can not wait to be teaching, hiking, bird watching, and just living camp life again on the Preserve with the GRP family.
