My name is T. J. Foltz. I am 32 years old. I speak to high school and jr. high students for a living. I love what I do. My wife, Audrey, and I have been married eight years. Our first son, Jackson, is one year old. Whenever possible, they travel with me. I began my career out of Syracuse University as a sportscaster. However, until recently, I have been a youth pastor at my church. In both of those pursuits, I began to hone my skills as a public speaker. In May, I moved on to fulltime speaking career, which involves high school and jr. high students all over the country. I realize now, that too often in my past career, the approach toward the students was “come and get it.” It has become clear to me that a better approach is to go where the students are, with a message that is positive and hopeful. I love to make people think. And I love to make people laugh. that is positive and hopeful. I love to make people think. And I love to make people laugh.
