Tim's life was one of pain and violence, crime and prison, cocaine and Ecstasy, sorrow and Heroin.
The pain and suffering he had spent his young life trying to escape from finally caught up with him and it seemed that the only permanent solution to eradicating the pain inside him was death itself.
Tim is a former Teen challenge graduate and staff member, is now married with children and has been planted in a local church for the last 14 years.
Tim has spent the last 16+ years sharing his life story in churches and youth groups, schools and prisons, in newspapers and on TV.
He uniquely communicates with honesty, humour and passion this message of hope to others who are trapped in addiction or paralysed by life controlling problems.
Tim has one simple vision in life - to communicate this 'message of hope' that he has been entrusted with.
