Tim is a self-professed student of history. In high school, he read biographies on U.S. military Generals Patton, Eisenhower and Grant. He read any book on World War II he could find and watched hours of The History Channel. It really was no surprise then that he enrolled at West Point after high school to learn leadership skills so that he could serve his country.
After graduating from West Point in 2004 with a BS in environmental engineering and military history, he was soon deployed to Iraq and assigned to lead an infantry platoon. The most important lesson he learned from the military was the universality of service.
It was that lesson that inspired him to start Service 2 School, a nonprofit to help veterans gain admission to post-secondary schools. Tim also leads Stanford’s Guardianship Pro Bono program that gives Stanford law school students the chance to help low-income caregivers obtain legal guardianship of the children for whom they are caring.
Tim’s goal is to one day serve in a leadership and management position in the public sector. He enjoys working in government positions and has a desire to return to the public sector to best serve the public and influence the largest number of people in a positive manner.
