Why they're a Crisis Leader:


I first met Tim while working as part of an instructor cadre teaching current and future incident managers.

His magnetic personality draws people in, and his depth of knowledge on almost any topic makes it hard to turn away.

From a background consisting of mixed martial arts to emergency response to exotic animal rescue, Tim is one of the most interesting men I know.
It’s an honor to be able to share his crisis leadership stories; many‘ ripped from the headlines.’

As you’ll see, his diverse background plays a huge part in his diverse set of skills he uses to lead himself and others during a crisis.

Be sure to learn more about his latest and arguably one of the most important projects he’s been involved with:  his leadership of Outreach For Animals, the #1 advocate for proper behavior around animals (opens in new tab).
