Tim was born in the wilds of Pennsylvania, with an Appalachian mountain as his backyard. He began singing solos at the age of 5 and his parents taught him how to hold a microphone by swapping out an ice cream cone each time he finished a song in practice.
He took that vocal background and made both district and regional high school chorus in south central Pennsylvania. He also was a soloist and member of a traveling vocal group called Living Miracles that was made up of counselors from Camp Joy-El and represented CBM Ministries.
Tim attended Messiah College and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in music. The elective work for his major was focused on youth and children. Tim led the summer vocal team, New Light, representing the college. Tim served as the road manager of the 6 member ensemble for two summers, which included a 19+ state summer tour each year while performing at churches and camps across the eastern and midwestern United States.
Tim started with CYT as a substitute vocal teacher during the fall of 2022. He enjoys hiking, camping, reading, singing, and playing and watching baseball, volleyball, and football. Any day he can get his wife Melissa and two daughters (Sophie and Lainie) outside and in view of some mountains is a good day.
