He is the former Communications Manager for Islamic Networks Group, an organization that counters prejudice and discrimination against American Muslims by teaching about their traditions and contributions in the context of America’s history and cultural diversity.
Tim was previously the Director of Operations for The 1010 Project, a Denver humanitarian agency that provides business and entrepreneurial education in Kenya by partnering with community-based organizations. He was also a Project Manager for Spotted Koi, a business and website consultancy. Tim served as an Online Community Mobilizer with Ashoka’s Changemakers, the premier global online community of social entrepreneurship and innovation. He was also a Project Communications Officer with Shoulder to Shoulder, a national campaign of over thirty religious denominations and interfaith organizations, where he led a special project to equip faith communities to push back against anti-Syrian/anti-refugee rhetoric.
Tim was an inaugural member of the Faiths Act Fellowship, an elite international program for interfaith leaders in the US, UK, and Canada, where he acted as an ambassador for the Millennium Development Goals. The Faiths Act Fellowship was a collaboration between the Interfaith Youth Core and Tony Blair Faith Foundation. He worked in the San Francisco Bay Area to build an intercollegiate interfaith coalition to fight malaria deaths.

Before moving to Denver, he was actively involved in interfaith peacebuilding in the Chicago area, working as a resident fellow at Aurora University’s Wackerlin Center for Faith and Action and collaborating with the Niagara Foundation, Interfaith Youth Core, and Hesed House.
He’s very interested in interfaith cooperation, the semantic web, and the future of the social sector. When he’s not reading, he enjoys cycling, writing, cooking, languages, beer, wine, kombucha, and tea.
