At his 3rd grade talent show, Tim was chained, padlocked, & placed into the coat cupboard, from which he escaped. By age 11, he was performing for churches, lodges, and birthday parties. It was by doing as many of shows as possible at a young age that Tim honed his sleight-of-hand & showmanship skills.
At 16, Tim saw an ad for the Magi-fest magic convention held in Ohio. Accompanied by his family, Tim competed in his first competition and would meet some of the nation’s top magicians. By meeting these elite magicians, Tim began to learn from the world’s best and compete in national and international competitions. It was not long before he would begin to gain recognition for the multiple awards he won.
