Tim is a storyteller, presenter & author, who loves to create mind-affecting media.

Tim has spent his entire adult life making media, and is comfortable both in the spotlight and behind the scenes. With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, he has worked with New Zealand’s biggest broadcasters and production companies including Television New Zealand, TV3, Eyeworks New Zealand, The Radio Network & MediaWorks, as well as with several prominent international Christian media organisations.

More recently, he spent eight years as the Executive Director of the New Zealand office of the media-focused global charity, Focus on the Family. He now works closely with their Head Office in Colorado Springs, creating visual, written and spoken media.

Tim also hosts radio shows on Newstalk ZB, New Zealand’s most-listened-to radio network, is the corporate voice of New Zealand’s largest Christian media organisation, Rhema Broadcasting Group and writes & voices radio features for CBA’s Scrubcutters, that also air on Newstalk ZB.

He has just wrapped up directing and presenting the globally released documentary, Irreplaceable, along with The Family Project, a DVD-based educational series on family and its effects on society. He is now busy working on a book, to be published globally by Tyndale House Publishers.

In the 10 years before having children, Tim and his wife spent a lot of time travelling, including living in Israel for 16 months, where they were volunteers on a kibbutz in Galilee. While living in Israel, he captained the Galilee region in its National Rugby Championships and was also a freelance journalist for media outlets in New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Canada.

Born in 1974, Tim is married to Jesmae, the cute girl he met at high school. They live in bush behind Auckland, New Zealand, with their four boys and a little princess.
In his spare time, if there ever is such a thing, Tim enjoys chasing chickens around his little lifestyle block, a thought-provoking read, a half-decent novel, buying new tech-toys, middle-eastern coffee, Graham Norton, short work-outs, the beach, the bush, travelling, dreaming up dreams, and as much time with his family as possible.

I have worked with Tim for quite a while and as a generalisation I would say this: Tim has the ability to not only present well, but to also connect well. Tim comes from a position of empathy towards his audience out of a connection to his own humanity. I can say (from feedback) that the people listening to Tim, feel connected to Tim and this is just the people sitting in the chairs listening as he engages them without a sense of WOW, but with a much deeper sense of REAL. When he gets a chance to interview or chat with someone perhaps on the stage in front of a crowd, the person in being interviewed relaxes and delivers in spades out of that sense that “he has something in common with me. In the sort of work that Tim is engaged in at the moment, he is bang on.
Wayne Mulqueen National Director- NZ Focus on the Family
Tim has an incredibly engaging ability as a speaker / communicator. From the extensive VO work we did in the Studio on a feature length documentary to the 6 hours of teaching curriculum Tim narrated, he was a true pro....always prepared, easy to work with, a quick study, soulful and authentic in his delivery. I cannot recommend him more highly. Onstage and in front of a live audience Tim is a force to be reckoned with ... charming, disarming, easygoing and a great conversationalist -- he's as excellent a listener as he is an entertainer...his presentations are always truthful, heart felt and honest...Tim keeps it real. He is as good on his feet in a Q &A as he is with prepared material. There is something very special about Tim's persona which is why whether I have been in the Studio or at a live event the feedback is always the same -- there's something very special about that man, his accent, his heart and the comfortable confidence with which he carries himself...some would call it charisma -- to me it's just the genuine bond he is able to establish immediately with the audience he's talking to, as well as the people he's working with...it's clear Tim cares about the work, the message and people to whom he's speaking. I love working with this guy.

I always find Tim an absolute dream to work with. He has a rare gift for thinking on his feet and communicating with eloquence, and I’m always confident that his insight, wit and humour will charm and engage our audience.

I have been privileged to share a stage with Tim many times, presenting to audiences all over New Zealand. His humorous, engaging and open-hearted style never failed to connect and move men to action.
