In 2005, Tim and a group of New York transplants who had settled in Portland, Oregon founded the regional theatre, Third Rail Repertory Theatre. That inaugural production (Recent Tragic Events, by Craig Wright) garnered the company major recognition by Portland’s Theatre awards, The Drammies, including one for outstanding production.

The company took off from there and in a very short time, began producing 5 shows per season with an annual budget just shy of a million dollars. The company quickly established the reputation for bringing compelling and challenging work with fantastic acting and tight direction. Tim is thrilled to continue the work in Los Angeles with this new and exciting company.

As an actor, Tim has performed in regional theatre across the country, including The Oregon Shakespeare, Festival, Utah Shakespearean Festival, Portland Center Stage, Actors Theatre of Louisville, The Intiman Theatre and many others. He’s guest-starred on Scandal, Big Little Lies, American Vandal, Modern Family, Workaholics, Agent Carter, Grimm, and Criminal Minds among others. With his producing partner, and Door Number 3’s Board President, Csaba Mera, Tim has co wrote and is in preproduction to direct the feature drama, ‘Anna’ this summer.
