Being born in the 80’s, Tim was influenced by the world of dance at a very young age. Superstars such as MC Hammer, Michael Jackson, and Paula Abdul inspired him to want to emulate what he saw them doing to music. With age came maturity, both in life and dancing. His focus evolved from a more street influenced Hip-Hop into more refined and technical ballroom dancing. Tim has risen through the ranks of Fred Astaire Sarasota, becoming one of the top instructors in the state of Florida. He now takes on his newest endeavor, studio owner!
