A lifelong and constant creator, Tim found his calling in game development. He majored in Film Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, and also had a passion for computers from an early age.
In high school Tim learned how to program his own video games, and kept that up as a hobby through college and early work life in Japan, first teaching English and later working on a prime-time Japanese Television show as assistant director.
Tim got his start in the games industry in quality assurance at Disney, quickly turning that into a producer role, and eventually game designer. There he started a mobile development team who went on to create Disney’s biggest early App Store successes "JellyCar" and “Where’s My Water?” That led to more senior creative positions at both Disney and later NBCUniversal as Vice President, Games Creative, where he led a team of designers and artists who helped solve creative challenges for games, and pitched new game concepts.
An accomplished independent game creator as well, Tim has created several popular games under the handle "Walaber".
