Coming from all the way across the pond Tim has spent much of his life on and around the water. Starting sailing from a young age Tim has represented Great Britain at an international level in a number of classes. He continued to both compete and coach whilst studying history at the University of Southampton, and since graduating has been working and traveling his way around the world. During a stint in Australia he spent 18 months working on a catamaran off the Queensland coast as first mate, where he sought to spend as much time as possible on or under the water. After this he moved to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands to become a scuba instructor and continues to stay either on, in, or as close to the ocean as social norms allow. Beyond this his hobbies include surfing, skiing , and kickboxing.
