Tim was raised in the Wasatch, adventuring with his family on rock, dirt, and snow, which remain passions he shares with his young family. He has worked in various realms of education - as an after school instructor, athletics coach, outdoor education instructor, and classroom teacher - for 18 years. When he isn't enjoying time with students and colleagues, he likes being outside exploring or at home with a good book.
