Tim writes, edits, and produces video and still photography for Inside IUPUI, among other duties. He is thrilled to be a member of IU Communications, bringing almost 20 years of experience in journalism, communications, and media work.
A graduate of Missouri State University, Tim started out as a copy editor and reporter for the Lafayette Journal & Courier before rising to features reporter, columnist, critic, videographer, blogger, and podcast host. He made the jump to academia when he was hired as the communications and media specialist for Purdue University’s College of Science. There, he wrote and edited the college’s alumni magazine, produced videos, wrote speeches, and updated web content.
When not writing, shooting, or editing, Tim enjoys rocking out in bands on bass guitar and sometimes “singing.” He has attended more than 2,000 concerts in his life and has the tinnitus to prove it. He enjoys supporting local restaurants, businesses, and artists. Tim is an avid hockey fan and is lucky to recall the “Chuck” Norris Division days of the National Hockey League.
