Living in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, Tim enjoys being surrounded by historic Summit Avenue and being a stone’s throw away from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birth home. Some of Tim’s hobbies include reading historical and political non-fiction, catching up on a documentary of interest (or watching the timeless TV show The Office), cleaning his apartment while blasting Leon Bridges or Dave Matthews Band, and dreams of getting a chocolate lab with blue eyes as his sidekick some day.
