A Gunks local turned NYC’er, TJ has been climbing for nearly two decades. Much of that time has been spent on the Shawangunk Ridge, though his list of traveled climbing destinations is plentiful. Favorites include: Peru, Cuba, Mexico and Thailand. TJ is an AMGA certified Rock Guide and while his trad rack hangs in the front of the gear closet, he can also be seen dabbling in sport and ice climbing, and even the occasional pebble wrestling!
As one of the directors for The Cliffs climbing gym, TJ’s efforts focus on helping to bridge the gap between climbing in the gym and cragging outdoors.
When not on the rock TJ spends his time exploring new cuisines, drinking too much coffee, and dancing to live tunes. He is currently accepting applications for seltzer water sponsorship.
