TJ is a Fine Arts Marketing Specialist for the University of Alberta Faculty of Arts. With a background in graphic design and several side-projects that keep him writing, TJ always has something creative on the go. A lot of the videos, graphics and photos you see on Curious Arts come from his adventures in the Fine Arts here at UAlberta. I hope you'll find these behind-the-scene peeks as interesting as he does.
