During his college years, Tim supplemented his income and paid for college tuition by serving as a freelance illustrator for local advertising agencies.

Upon graduating from art school, Tim accepted a full-time job as an electrician in a steel mill while moonlighting as a portrait artist and illustrator for friends, co-workers and additionally The Cleveland Magazine.
