At the tender age of four, and to the great surprise of his parents, Tim boldly declared two goals in life: to play cricket for Australia, and to become the pope. Needless to say, things haven’t quite gone to plan.
Born and bred in Sydney’s north western suburbs, Tim stumbled out of high school and into a commerce degree, where he quickly discovered that finance and accounting are best left to folks who can count. A dalliance with Sydney University’s department of industrial relations led to a brief stint as an organiser for the NSW shoppies’ union, and a bourgeoning interest in all things political.
In 2008, Tim fell in with the Australian Family Association, where he currently performs the dual role of national research officer and media spokesperson, while at the same time completing a law degree at Monash University. And despite persisting with the cricket and the church-going, Tim is gradually learning to let go of those heady childhood ambitions.
