ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Prior to and often in parallel with his work in professional sports, TJ has built a career product development and entrepreneurship. His interest in open-source software led him to create Thirteen, an online co-op providing internet services to individuals, arts organizations, and small companies, in continuous operation since 1997.

TJ also founded The People's Karaoke, a small entertainment company managing karaoke and DJ events, and onthebar, a company centered on the development of a mobile application to help people navigate local nightlife. For four years he produced an annual charity gala called The Thing, which led to a co-founder role at Thirst Boston, a cocktail festival held annually focused on spirits education and highlighting the local hospitality industry.

Most recently, he served as Head of Product for 1-800-N0TH1NG, an innovation lab formed to explore opportunities in technology and media through game development.
