Tim was born and raised in Edmonton Alberta. Tim has been involved in the photographic industry and information technology industries for most of his working career. Tim founded Technicare Inc. and later Technicare Imaging Ltd. with partners and built it into the largest digital imaging production company in Canada. Tim and his wife Anne bought property in Kaslo in 2001 and became permanent residents in 2003. The very limited internet services in Kaslo led him to join the Kaslo Broadband Committee and later the Board of Kaslo InfoNet to build the access capacity for Kaslo and North Kootenay Lake. Tim is part of the Technical Services Committee.
