My name is TJ Houston. First and foremost I am a lifelong learner. As you can see by the header I am passionate about 3 things. Leadership, Educating and Photography. This blog is an extension of those things and hopefully you will find something here that saves you time or makes your life easier! I live in Nova, Ohio with my lovely wife Ashley and crazy German Sheppard Jynx.


My career has taken me to many places and provided me with very unique experiences that have made me into the leader I am today. My full time career is with Epiphany Management Group where I am the Vice President of Managed services. In this role I am in charge of our service delivery team of about 65 employees in over 30 schools across Ohio. I am often looked at as agent of change as my personality lends itself well to adapting to the changes around me. I do a lot of reading and you can see my recommendations for books here!


I have worked in education my entire career and I really do enjoy that moment when someone finally understands something and they “get it”. Whether it is a teacher, a student or a member of my staff I love being the conduit for people to learn and grow.


I photograph seniors and weddings in mid Ohio and have a brick and mortar studio located in Nova Ohio. I have been a portrait photographer for about 7 years and I absolutely love everything about the craft. I am working towards my craftsman degree from PPA and I am currently the President of the Akron Society of Professional Photographers.
