Tim calls the mountains of Colorado home, while having made a life for himself climbing, exploring, teaching, and learning throughout the mountains of the Americas. Before working with Dragons, Tim instructed mountaineering and rock climbing courses and instructor trainings for Outward Bound. Tim has extensively explored communities and landscapes of the Central and Southern Andes, traveling the remote corners of Bolivia, Chile and Argentina – where he finds the harsh geographic reality infinitely inspiring. Tim is a passionate educator who believes that experiential education is a great tool for understanding our place in the world and learning to live a creative, compassionate and authentic life. With Dragons, Tim has instructed or supported courses in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Nepal and SE Asia. Over his 13 years working with Dragons Tim has played a key role in designing curriculum for student programming and educator trainings. In his current role as Director of Risk Management he consults, trains, and presents regularly at conferences and schools. He lives in Boulder with his wife and two children.
