After attending the Sydney conservatory of Music as a pianist and completing a year of politics at UNSW, Tim settled on a field that has come to define his somewhat divergent career ever since. Completing the then brand new Bachelors in digital media at the College of Fine Arts, Tim’s final project, a hand coded audio visual performance, was a sign of things to come.

In the years since Tim has worked as a sound, lighting and video designer in theatre, dance, film, interactive and installation art. His fascination with code and its capacity to make lighting, sound and video talk to another has defined much of his performative works which were described by The Age’s Maritn Ball as “a modern take on Philip Glass’s Koyaanisqatsi”. Never one to take himself too seriously, Tim’s most successful art project is perhaps his most bizarre, the abstract expressionist techno pop group Arthaus, described as the highlight of the 2012 Pete’s Ridge Festival.
Concurrent to these artistic expressions, Tim has worked solidly as a technician, operator, producer and project manager in events and festivals. Tim’s most recent position at The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, coordinating the organisation’s youth Intermix program, led him to an initial collaboration with George and Pause Fest in 2014.
