Tim got his professional start in the plumbing business. After six years, he changed course and worked for Flying L Guest Ranch, a golf course and resort in the Texas Hill Country. There, he realized he belonged in the hotel industry and returned to school for hospitality management. He has since worked for companies such as Marriott and Hilton, and oversaw an $8-million renovation and rebranding of a Holiday Inn into a Doubletree. Tim joined the New Waterloo team as chief engineer for both Hotel Ella and South Congress Hotel in November 2015. Outside of work, he loves cycling, writing and playing music, and outdoor activities. His spirit food is the avocado, and has immortalized his love for the fruit with two tattoos and counting.
