Add one part curiosity, two parts science, a desire to solve problems, and the result is a happy engineer. Tim focuses on designing telecommunication systems for commercial and industrial facilities. He combines his six years of construction experience with 22 years of engineering to expertly solve complex problems for his clients. Tim’s experience expands the globe with projects in Ireland, China, Korea, Malaysia, India, Singapore and across the United States. When not traveling, you may find him speaking at a BICSI Conference, where he routinely presents seminars on the National Electrical Code ®.

Tune into the amateur radio bands on any given weekend and you may hear Tim calling, “QST, QST, this is KD7RUS calling QST.” Tim has a passion for radio and has found a way to take what he has learned in engineering and apply it to his hobby in amateur radio. He enjoys building his own antennas, working a contest on the HF bands, and honoring the tradition of communicating in Morse code.
Taking Time to Listen
Did you hear that? It may have been the call of a Towhee or an Oregon Junco. While on vacation or traveling to different project locations, Tim enjoys birding. At home, he has several sets of binoculars around the house in case a new bird visits the feeders. On the road a bird book easily fits into his carry-on luggage. He finds it’s a way to connect with the world around him and enjoy nature wherever he travels.
By training and practice Tim is an electrical engineer, but deep down he thinks his second calling is mechanical engineering. To him, an enjoyable weekend is fixing an ailing engine, welding, or mobile refrigeration repair. He also has a special interest in compression ignition engines. Tim feels there is a mechanical purity in the way the engine perpetuates from one cycle to the next with only the need for air and fuel.
