After graduating with a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2004, Tim moved back to the midwest to begin his career at a traditional design studio in Grand Rapids. In 2008 Tim jumped ship within the city to Kantorwassink, a ultra-creative design and advertising agency where he is the Senior Designer and Art director on a mall team. This short period of time has allowed him to showcase an impressive list of projects, clients and awards in national competitions and publications alike.
