Spending his entire life in Florida’s unique environment convinced him of the need for preservation in the midst of progress. Since he reached age three, Tim fished and spent countless hours on the water. He bought his own boat at age 12 to explore both fresh and salt water environments. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies, he worked for the Department of Environmental Protection where he was exposed first-hand to the diverse environmental challenges to Florida’s fragile ecosystems and the best means to protect its land and water surfaces.
Tim is certified in a broad range of crucial disciplines such as habitat assessment, wetland delineation, uniform mitigation assessment method (UMAM) and environmental rules and statutes.
