TJ Hunt is a full-time auto content creator and YouTube partner whose chronicled exploration of the car world is an ideal example of how to live in the moment and not be afraid to make the kinds of decisions that could eventually lead to cultivating a successful brand and business, as well as owning your 'dream car' while still in your 20's. Equipped with a high-energy attitude and engaging nature, TJ's personalized how-to's and vlogs project the excitement and banter amongst trusted cohorts that take place while working on various stock and modified vehicles. His continued triumphs and activity on the car scene have helped solidify TJ Hunt's name, influence, and brand as one of today's leading online automotive personalities.


After producing paintball gun reviews on YouTube in 2009, TJ took a roughly four-year break from making videos before his return in 2014 to highlight the sound set-up of a BMW 328i Performance Exhaust & Intake (E90) by request. At the time, he hinted that positive feedback could lead to the creation of his own auto-centric YouTube channel. Two months later, he decided to take his photography/film skills and interest in cars to the next level by announcing a new series of vlogs that he hoped would build a thriving outlet for car enthusiasts.


Crediting fellow YouTubers David Patterson ('ThatDudeInBlue') and subaruwrxfan for inspiring him to become more active in the online car community, TJ began documenting his experiences as he navigated car modifications, attended auto events, appeared at meet-ups, and conducted individual car reviews in the Southern California area – all while treating viewers to un-edited takes, silly bloopers, and unique behind-the-scene shots.


TJ's YouTube channel started to gain noticeable traction after his freshman year in college, as he juggled making videos, attending classes, and studying to earn a nursing degree at California State University San Marcos. By his junior year, he recognized the increasingly unique opportunity to make a living doing something he enjoyed. As he started to rethink his future plans and seriously entertain the idea of becoming a full-time YouTuber, TJ's mind was made up 50 minutes into the first class of his senior year, where he decided to drop out of college in order to dedicate his time towards growing his audience, channel and overall brand.


Originally from Montreal, Quebec, TJ currently resides in San Diego, California, where he records himself in everyday situations, from teaching a loved one how to drive stick to transforming a warehouse into his 'dream garage' – appropriately dubbed the 'Huntquarters,' which is presently equipped with a car lift, black-and-red checkerboard flooring, hangout couches and homemade work benches, amongst other signature characteristics.


Since devoting himself to his channel and love of cars, TJ's efforts have been well worth it. Fans of TJ (referred to as part of the #TJHuntArmy) have consistently tuned in to see him work on his supercharged and strikingly modified vehicles, which include a 1995 MX-5 Miata Mazda, 2006 350Z Nissan, and 2013 BRZ Subaru. In late 2016, to commemorate reaching 500,000 YouTube subscribers on his ironmenfan1 account, TJ celebrated with the purchase of his dream car (the vehicle he's yearned for since he was a freshman in high school) – the Nissan GT-R. To date, TJ's 'army' continues to grow, closing in on nearly 700,000 subscribers.


Many milestones have been documented throughout the lifetime of his channel, which include cutting the BRZ's rear fenders, teaching his girlfriend how to drive a stick shift, and pushing the sound capabilities of his GTR. Dubbed the 'coolest car he's ever owned,' over 480,000 viewers tuned in to see what happened when TJ gave Premium Auto Styling full creative control over one of his vehicles to achieve his desired vision of Need for Speed meets Fast and Furious. The result, an eye-catching neon-bright 350Z Nissan emblazoned with custom detailing, sponsor shout outs, and the name 'Selena,' did not disappoint.


TJ additionally shares his insight and experiences via livestreaming Q&A sessions, car forums, and the no-filter Calvin TJ Podcast uploaded every Sunday. Fellow BRZ owner, Calvin Cabiling (whose appearances on TJ's vlog have led to a following of his own) oftentimes rides shotgun and provides colorful commentary in TJ's videos. Hunt & Co. crew also work with and create videos with fellow gearheads, including Evan Beckerman (co-founder of throtl), and other YouTubers like car reviewer Evan Shanks, BMXer and drifter Adam LZ, and sports car enthusiast Rob Dahm.


In addition to maintaining his online presence, TJ also sells merchandise through his Hunt & Company enterprise, which markets 'Twerk It' hoodies (that pay homage to his car 'Miley'), windbreakers, T-shirts, snapbacks, carbon fiber phone cases and sunglasses, as well as stickers that bear his motto, 'Keep Moving Forward.'


As a self-proclaimed desert rat, TJ recently acknowledged his previous love of motocross and introduced the first motorcycle purchased and brought into his warehouse – a stock Monster Edition Kawasaki 250F – and then left the possibility of future motorcycle videos being featured on his channel up to his fans. In the meantime, TJ will continue to keep busy perfecting his street legal rides. And, sometime next year, look for TJ to explore the drift scene by competing in his first Pro-Am, with an FD professional by his side, serving as his mentor.
