Tim grew up in a wealthy family with every opportunity in the world available to him but spent the majority of his young adult life throwing those opportunities down the drain.
In 2013, Tim made a drastic change to leave that lifestyle behind and to enlist in the Unites States Army. Finding your personal purpose in life is challenging and for Tim, it took joining the Army to find his. Being a soldier was Tim’s childhood dream and the time he spent in the military changed his life. It taught him what it meant to be a member of a team, how important it was to be passionate about how you live and how to offer yourself up to something greater than just yourself.
After three and a half years, in 2016, Tim was promoted to Sergeant (SGT) shortly before he was medically discharged due to an injury he sustained to his spine on a NATO support operation in Slovakia.
Now, after three surgeries on his spine, Tim uses his disability and the obstacles he has faced to inspire people. Tim found his new calling in writing when he published his first book, Reflections from the Man in the Mirror, shortly after his discharge. This book shares the incredible people in Tim’s life and the lessons they have taught him along the way. This book relives Tim’s journey from a spoiled rich kid to becoming a soldier and through his return back home.
In 2019, Tim published his second book, Secrets from Strangers. This book relives 18 life changing encounters Tim had with complete strangers. As challenging as Tim’s disability has been for him, it has allowed him to slow life down enough to appreciate the world around him. The encounters Tim shares in this book are powerful because they present the reader with an alternative way of thinking.
In addition to writing his books, Tim publishes inspirational posts on this website every week! Tim studied Conflict Resolution at Kent State University for his undergraduate degree and is currently working towards his Graduate degree in Leadership from Northeastern University. He is also currently working as a Team Lead and Walk-in Case Manager for mental health and chemical dependency clients. Tim spends his days helping people overcome the obstacles they face in their lives and motivating them to live a fulfilling life through recovery, personal development and ambition.
