Our Team

Our team is made up of  some amazing folks who are everything from advocates and activists to mental health professionals.  More importantly each TBuddy donates their time because they want to give back to our community.  It doesn't get any better than that!

We consist of a group of transmasculine individuals who are whole-heartedly committed to giving back to their communities. This team consists of all types of amazing people including advocates, activists, and mental health professionals. With each of these individuals having lived experience as a transgender person they are more than qualified to provide not only encouragement, but feedback and resources.

We hands down have some of the best people on our team! Take a moment to check them out!

Hi there, Daxton here. I am a 37 yr old Trans man, and seahorse dad. I have a background in education and enjoy helping with youth programs in my area. Currently, I am working as a self-taught woodworker and love creating unique things with style. When I am not in the shop I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, cycling, going to my son’s baseball games/scout events, or just outside enjoying nature. Looking forward to chatting with you.

Hi, I’m Elliot! I’m 37 years old and live in Connecticut. I grew up in a small, conservative, rural town in Western New York and struggled with my identity for many years before I started my transition at 34. I never realized how wrong I felt in my body until I finally made the decision to transition. I didn’t know any trans people when I was discovering my true self, so I felt very alone and isolated. I volunteer with TBuddy so that I can be the friend I needed for someone else who may be struggling with their own journey.
