Tim has called Northern Ontario home for most of his life. With a background that includes experience in professions and industry from forestry to education, Tim brings a balanced perspective to the role of political representative. His educational background is just as diverse, as he holds undergraduate degrees from Lakehead University in Education and Biology, and a Fish and Wildlife Technician Diploma from Sault College. He has also just began a Masters in Environmental Practice.
As an active member of his community, Tim works hard to improve the opportunities for youth and adults. Local initiatives include: ecoschools certification, coordinator of recreation opportunities, and reporting on local issues in regional publications.
Currently, Tim and his wife teach in Pickle Lake, but they began their careers in the remote community of Slate Falls First Nation. Tim has a strong interest in environmental and aboriginal issues, both being closely intertwined and essential considerations for the Kenora-Rainy River riding.
Tim has volunteered for several campaigns as a member of the Green Party. He has knocked on numerous doors and made countless phone calls listening to neighbours outline what is most important to them. These discussions along with a belief in the values put forward by the Green Party of Ontario have helped make Tim an ideal candidate for Northern Representative for the PE.
