Tim on stage delivering a TEDx talk in October 2023

🤷‍♂️ what's my deal?

I'm all about demystifying artificial intelligence to inspire a more ethical and inclusive tech future, where curiosity and adaptability lead the way.

I also help people figure out how tech stuff works.

I'm currently on the hunt for a new job! I'm a technology leader, software architect, proud dad, happily married, avid public speaker, Ruby on Rails/iOS developer, anecdotalist, musician, and endurance athlete.
