Tim spends much of his day writing articles and content for The Fool and, not surprisingly, loves it! However, Tim still fancies himself a storyteller as well and will continue to pursue his passion for writing fiction. His first book, The Lives of Stupid People Volume 1 (The next, great American novel as you can tell from the title!), was published in 2011, along with a couple award-winning short stories. Tim majored in business studies and marketing at the University of Oregon, remains an avid soccer player and crossword fanatic, and currently lives with his 3 children in Portland, OR.
