Edward TJ Brown (aka Eddie Brown) was born April 19th, 1979 in Tucson, Arizona.   He grew up in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia where he had the opportunity to learn about many different cultures, languages, customs and creeds. 

 

During his 10th and 11th grade years, Brown attended high school at the Alexander Dawson School in Colorado.  His senior year was spent at an American DOD school in Bahrain.  After graduation, Brown moved back to the United States, settling in western Minnesota.
