JT was raised in rural North Carolina as one of Jehovah's Witnesses since he was five years old. Although he was not old enough to drive a car, nothing could deter his mother from dressing him up in a suit and tie to go out peddling Watchtowers for their newfound faith. At an early age, he was being groomed to do more for the popularity of the faith. All his mother’s hard work paid off when he chose to pioneer after high school instead of pursuing a college degree. He applied to and was accepted to serve at Bethel in Brooklyn, NY, at age 19. Jokingly, some have said that going to Bethel is the Watchtower's version of Harvard University.
Long before co-founding the EXJW Critical Thinker YouTube channel in February 2013, with his wife, Lady Cee, JT was busy interacting with individuals on Jehovahswitness.net and the now-defunct H20 bulletin boards. He’s logged over 8,000 posts discussing his personal experiences, sharing insider knowledge, and helping individuals to implement critical thinking when examining the teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
As an online activist, JT uses his expertise as the subject matter expert, demonstrating Watchtower theology based on what he observed when serving at Bethel and as a senior member of his local congregation. He works alongside Lady Cee, helping many individuals to open their mind’s eye and realize the biased views of the religion.
