Tim has been my trusted mentor and intellectual confidant for many years now. He's one of the most "well read" individuals I've ever met and has an unrivaled passion for the literary arts. He is enthusiastic, kind and giving with his interest in ideas and written word.
Tim is the genuine article. A bon vivant, writer, man of the people and all around mensch.
Timothy is a very dedicated, intelligent journalist who I believe is a trustworthy teacher due to his many years as a teacher, journalist, community volunteer and writer and the many years I have known him especially in connection with the work he has done at the Maine Irish Heritage Center and for the Portland Phoenix newspaper over the last six years that I personally witnessed.
