Tim, his wife Kelly and daughter Ruthie are North Shore residents and they all enjoy their neighbors, community involvement, and staying active in their parish at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church. Tim also freely gives up his time treasure and talent for initiatives supporting North Shore salmon and other aquatic habitats and the North Shore Lookout Society. When he does have a free minute, Tim retreats to his ultimate man cave to butcher wood, shuck some oysters, have a soda and watch football. Tim and his wife also enjoy hiking the North Shore Trails, but he knows that, for himself, all journeys start with a good 12-steps.
