Biographical details

Completing a bachelor degree in Exercise and Sport Science and a master in Clinical Rehabilitation at The University of Sydney Tim began his career in the field of clinical exercise physiology. He implemented his skills using exercise as a medicine for a range of chronic diseases. During this time he guided university students in the practical implementation of exercise physiology and remained closely connected to The University of Sydney, employed as a tutor and project assistant.

Tim took some time to travel the world in an effort to get a deeper understanding of life and focus on personal development. During this time he focussed on things in life that inspired him. These things included music, creativity, culture, building new relationships, surfing, learning new skills such as snowboarding and speaking Spanish and volunteering his skills as an exercise physiologist and musician.

After returning from travels he was offered the position of manager and Exercise Physiologist in the FitAbility clinic at The University of Sydney where he went on to become the Clinical Educator Coordinator for the Discipline of Exercise and Sport Science. Since then Tim has contributed to the university in a number of roles including tutor, research assistant and project management. He is currently lecturing undergraduate and postgraduate students as a Discipline Specialist in Exercise and Sport Science. Tim continues to study at the university, completing a PhD on the underlying mechanisms of music use in exercise and physical activity. This has allowed him to combine and further develop his skills and interests in exercise physiology, music, research and positive psychology.
