  • For online, print, magazines, radio, and television, Tim has conducted more than 2,000 interviews throughout his career with several of the biggest names in the film and television industry.
  • Tim is the author of the eBook "Direct Conversations: The Animated Films of Tim Burton," which includes a foreword by Tim Burton. Tim interviewed Burton and several of his actors and crew members, and he has done dozens more interviews for the eBook's second edition, which is in the works.
  • Since 2013, Tim has reviewed films for two major market radio stations in Minneapolis, as well as pair of stations in outstate Minnesota and two major podcasts based in Minneapolis. He was also a weekly film critic for the NBC-TV affiliate station in Minneapolis.


In the fall of 2020, Tim began contributing to Xoop as a feature writer, news writer, and interviewer. He is a veteran entertainment reporter who has written for dozens of network television affiliate websites and major entertainment outlets since 1999. Part of his experience was as the national entertainment news editor for 10 years for the Internet Broadcasting Network (which was eventually acquired by Nexstar Broadcasting), an online platform that, at its peak, provided written and video content to more than 70 network television affiliates across the United States including sites for ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and The CW. He has interviewed many actors, including Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, and filmmakers like Francis Ford Coppola, James Cameron, Christopher Nolan, Jodie Foster, and Ridley Scott, just to name a few.


While Tim first earned two bachelor of science degrees in political science and law enforcement from Minnesota State University in Mankato, he shifted his career focus to journalism by returning to school at Brown College to earn a certificate in radio and television broadcasting. Tim's writing career began at a small market newspaper outside of Minneapolis, which led to his work in magazines and eventually, online journalism — where he applied his skills as a radio and television broadcaster as well.
