After running away from Theoretical Physics research, Tim has worked towards educational equity as science communicator (with Questacon), careers counsellor (own business), teacher recruiter (with Teach For Australia), and trainer for STEM volunteering organisations (as a volunteer). Through the meriSTEM program, he assists teachers and volunteer contributors to implement best practice in their endeavours to produce positive outcomes for students.

In Tim's spare time, he runs a Bengal cat breeding business with his partner (Benonara Bengals Australia), and relaxes with sci-fi and sports.
