Tim grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago, much unlike the wilds of Alaska that he finds himself in now. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation Park & Tourism Administration from Western Illinois University in 2012. Tim spent the next three summers guiding kayak trips in Geiranger, Norway, as well as the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on Lake Superior. He handled for Karin Hendrickson and helped her train her 2014 Iditarod team. He currently is a handler for Wild and Free Mushing and helped Brent Sass train his 2015 Yukon Quest and Iditarod teams.
