When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.
As a writer he has contributed to Atheism Resource, ShitZombiesSay.net, and numerous other sites. JT currently writes a regular column for American Atheist Magazine
JT maintains a regular speaking schedule and has appeared at the American Atheists national convention, Apostacon, Skepticon, the SSA Leadership Conference, the American Humanist Association’s national convention, the Pennsylvania Atheist/Humanist convention, and many, many more.
In his personal life, JT is a trained opera singer who has worked under the directorship of two-time Grammy award winner James Billings. He is also an avid gamer who can often be found playing League of Legends. This year he joined forces with the hosts of the Game Theory Podcast to form an online hub for atheist gamers (fittingly called “Atheist Gamers”) where atheists of all stripes from board gamers to those who enjoy online games can bask in each other’s company.
