My name is Tim. I am a devoted family man. My wife likes my sense of humor and the fact that I enjoy singing. I once used to dance, but now them most physical exercise I get is galloping like a horse with my toddler girl on my shoulders... a very good workout. : )

I am always striving to do things more intelligently. Five terms that describe my natural strengths are: Learning, Intellection, Connectivity, Future, and Belief. With this in mind, my writing style tends to incorporate these themes as well. I seem to be in deep-thought mode too often, sometimes I'm just staring at the computer screen with a spacey look... or perhaps I've been up too late. : )

I like helping others. I enjoy encouraging others to do their best and reach their potential. The most inspiring thing to me is to watch someone do what they do best, whether it's an Olympic athlete, or a grocery store clerk (as long as that IS their full potential).
