Tim's talent as an actor gives him a unique perspective when stepping behind the lens as both a director and tutor. His ability to make his students feel at ease on set and in front of the camera not only makes for a positive work environment but ensures the strongest performance.
Born and raised in Adelaide, Tim was working as a chippie for his old man when he fell down a well and realised the building industry wasn’t his cup of tea. With a new nose and a few less brain cells, Tim decided to pursue a career in acting and was lured to Melbourne after being accepted into the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). It was here he honed his stage skills, performing lead roles in a variety of plays including Our Country’s Good, Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, Victory, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear, The Venetian Twins and The Perjured City.

During this time, Tim made his MTC debut playing Laertes in Simon Phillips’ production of Hamlet, followed by MTC’s world premiere of Return to Earth.
Tim then landed a lead on Channel 10’s Wonderland in Sydney where he pulled out his old carpentry skills and absolutely NAILED the role of Steve Beaumont for 3 consecutive seasons. Other television credits include Neighbours, Rush, Underbelly, Mrs. Biggs, The Code 2 and Home and Away.
