As a little boy, Tim grew up dreaming of being a ski bum or a pro biker while playing in the hills in Western Pennsylvania. After graduating with a degree in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh in 1994, he passed his first securities license and slowly started to build a career. He realized he didn’t enjoy the ‘sales’ part of the finance industry, but loved educating people and the excitement of the markets, so he took these passions and slowly transitioned from sales into operations, then finally into compliance.
Tim joined Cascade in 2012 bringing with him almost 20 years of investment experience gained from his time with local, national, and international firms. He has a deep understanding of all types of financial products, from mutual funds and insurance to complex options strategies and private placements.
He has not given up his lifelong dream of being a ski bum or pro biker, however, and spends all of his free time with his two young boys, wife and dog in the mountains around their Colorado home.
Hobbies / activities: Tim is a volunteer for the Boulder Mountain Bike Patrol and races mountain bikes for Tokyo Joe’s Cycling Team. He loves riding any type of bicycle, snowboarding, and camping with his family.
