Soon after landing in Seattle from NYC, JT learned motorcycle and lived on the Pacific Coast for a year. After he got back,, somthing got built and the "12hr notice" moniker trudged about town.
Nothing was safe.
Parks, streets, abandoned properties, dark places, illuminous spaces, and even your own private homes had what little dignity left ripped away.



Exploring diverse arts, DJ'ing eclectic tunes, planning and building temporary/ semi-permanent custom audio/ visual installations/ projections for unique homes, event spaces, and all types of live performances. JT layers refined + dirty sound/ video effects on DJs/ bands/ musicians' live work/ mixing/ productions. what he does best is collaborating on a wide range of events, including free community events
