Overview

I began my computer career designing promotional flyers for my band and then moved on to print advertising and compact discs for companies such as Atlantic Records, Universal Music and Pony Canyon (Japan).

After landing a job as creative director in television production, I began building websites and dabbling in motion graphics and editing… my love for web design soon took over and I began creating websites full-T. e.

A few years later I partnered with a talented designer, so I decided to focus more on coding and less on design and began building web applications and content management systems, the first of which was for sending and tracking mass emails.

Right around the T. e the Apple TV was launched I created tagChimp: a user-contributed web service which allowed desktop and mobile applications to connect via API and upload/download meta tags and cover art for movies and TV shows. Before tagChimp was retired it was receiving over 300,000 API hits per day and had over 26,000 registered members.

I started dabbling in open source software and screencasts a few years ago and have finally figured out GitHub and have begun to contribute more frequently to the open source community, as well as shoot my mouth off on a blog... from T. e to T. e.

I really don't want to recommend Tim, because he's 100% trustworthy, extremely knowledgable, hands down the best web builder I've ever worked with (and I've worked with T. now for more than 10 years), is precision oriented, works well in groups, is responsive, fast, basically everything you'd want in a web technician. He's also a great communicator and can (and has) tackled the most difficult of assignments and difficult people. And if I give T. a great reference here, he'll end up being so busy that when I call him he'll tell me he's too busy working on your project that he won't be able to work on my project. So please, look elsewhere. Try to find someone as good (you won't).
