About Tim

Tim is a nationally recognized and insanely talented youth motivational speaker, teen coach, and author. He connects with his audiences through side-splitting comedy, and motivates through engaging storytelling tied in with personal experiences.

At an early age, Tim was identified as a “troubled child.” Having been arrested for the first of many times by the age of eleven, Tim was plagued with bad decisions.

One day Tim ‘woke-up’ – he had had enough and knew deep down his life was inclined for better.

Tim decided to turn his life around. He started with his family, then he climbed the ranks of Corporate America. He provided his leadership skills to fortune 500 companies, and now provides endless hours of his time and experience working with teens and young people across the country.

Tim believes it is ‘the giver’ who truly receives, and in helping others, ‘the helper’ who receives the maximum benefit.

As an award winning speaker, Tim travels the country discussing Teen Potential, healthy decision-making for teens, and the powerful resiliency that lives in young people.  His message is perfect for any middle school, high school, or leadership conference.

Keynote & Workshops

In this inspirational keynote, Tim delves into his personal experiences, as well as the evidence-based research and neuroscience behind the incredible effects of helping people, and the prevailing rewards and benefits in giving yourself and service to others.


Keynote & Workshops

Without a doubt, there may be children in this world who respond to being told not to put their hand on a hot stove...unfortunately, Tim has never actually met one. This assembly is based on the powerful differences between negative actions and consequences of unhealthy decisions, compared with positive actions and the benefits of making healthy decisions, and especially how your choices undoubtedly affect others.
