Tim grew up in Gloucestershire, spending much of his time in the outdoors and helping out on family farms during holidays. He managed to combine his love of travelling with the outdoors by heading to Australia to work in the outdoor education department of a school in Victoria. It was here that he really began to realise how nature and outdoor activity can to help raise the confidence of young people. After this he studied Geography & Politics at Sheffield University before heading down to live in London where he did a variety of jobs ranging from assisting on film productions, to dressing as a giant chess piece in Hyde Park.
However the work that made the biggest impact was working as an HLTA in special needs schools and pupil referral units. This combined with volunteering at Jamie’s Farm Waterloo has led him back to working in the outdoors with young people. At Lewes Tim will be mostly found in the kitchen or garden and probably off on some walks too. If he’s not at Lewes he’ll probably be making short films or performing with his improv comedy group.
