Growing up, part of an impoverished family that moved around quite a bit, Tim lived in extreme poverty until the age of 10. He lived in NH, ME, FL, and MA before his mother finally settled in Milford New Hampshire where Tim lived until graduating high school. As a young adult, Tim worked full time while attending college, as well as flying lessons, during his off-hours, and was the first person in several generations of his family to graduate college. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in management at the end of 2007. His career is in the field of Information Technology. During his professional career he has worked for a variety of high-tech companies here in New Hampshire such as Degree Controls, Barlo Signs, and AdvantEdge, as well as in the non-profit sector. In his personal time he studies economics (and is a member of the American Economic Association), aviation, and world history, as well as enjoying various hobbies.
