Growing up in the small town of Lake Tapps, Washington, TJ learned early on the value of strong bonds within a community. His love of close-knit connections kept him in Washington for school as he headed north to Bellingham to attend Western Washington University where he would graduate with honors in business administration and marketing in 2003. An avid skier, TJ witnessed an accident involving a snowboarder. He stayed with her awaiting medical assistance and that time proved to be valuable as that snowboarder is now his wife and they recently welcomed their first daughter to the world.
TJ spent several years at Apex Systems Inc. garnering experience and winning back to back Top Performer awards in 2006 and 2007, before breaking off and co-founding Prodigy Resources in Denver, Colorado. Prodigy was awarded “Fastest Growing Company” by INC 500 in 2012. After a few years helping get Prodigy up and running in Denver, CO, TJ decided to return to the Pacific Northwest and open a third branch in Seattle, Washington. With almost seven successful years running Prodigy, TJ purchased his Seattle office and Proliance Consulting was born. The little free time he has these days, TJ hits the golf course, enjoys grilling outdoors and cheering on a certain blue and green themed football team.
