When he's not coaching Tim likes to go for runs with his two rescue dogs, Cocoa and Hazel! They have almost as much energy as his U9 girls! Coach Tim's soccer hero is Lionel Messi. He remembers watching him play when he made his debut for Barcelona and has been following his career ever since. Messi's ability (especially when younger) to fight through tackles and stay on his feet even when being fouled was something Tim always admired.
When asked about his dream job Tim said, "True success is finding something you love and getting paid for it. I truly believe coaching soccer and mentoring young players is my dream job and I am thankful every moment I am out on the pitch and working with players, from first time Rec players to long time Academy players!"
Fun fact about Tim—he is training for and hoping to compete on American Ninja Warrior. He hopes to be Alexandria Soccer's Ninja Warrior!
