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.
