A lifetime of helping people learn and laugh

Tim has developed a dynamic compound, redefining “motivation” as connection and trust, creating the perfect blend of laughter, thought and inspiration for every keynote he delivers. With a firm grasp of the attention economy in this age of acceleration, Tim’s style reflects the chaos and speed in with which we now work and live.

Discovering his greatest inspirations from a collection of worst practices and fabulous failures, this instructive ringleader has mastered the use of humor as a tool. Compelling, unique, interactive, and fun, Tim has brought forth inspiring and engaging experiences for audiences at conferences, conventions, management gatherings, client appreciation events, and educational in-services and staff days.

Tim unites Millennials, GenXers and Boomers alike in an unforgettable encounter, his energy underscoring and reflecting the realities of this over-stimulated and distracted emailing, Facebooking, Tweeting world in which we now find ourselves living and working.



An award winning educator

Tim managed to carve out a comedy career on the national circuit, working with many well-known comics such as Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Wright and Larry Miller. And Tim’s standup can be heard alongside those and others on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio’s comedy channels.

In 2005, his stage play “Leaving Iowa” premiered at Jeff Daniels’ Purple Rose Theatre Company during which it received a nomination for American Theatre Critics’ award for Best New Play in the country, was soon thereafter published and is currently performed in theaters all over the U.S. and Canada.

So it turns out that comedy, improv, writing, directing and teaching are not such strange bedfellows. Tim has synthesized his calling as a thought leader in motivational speaking, reinventing conferences one funny experience at a time. As he often says, “If you want them to hear it, tell them. If you want them to remember, make them laugh.”

Tim has been privileged to speak before such notables as former President George H.W. Bush and economist Paul Krugman. and continues to expand his role as a speaker and facilitator, magnifying the art of connection and extolling the virtues—and what Tim feels is the necessity—of finding Comfort in Discomfort.
