Tim is a writer/online content creator, who calls Omaha home. He started writing The Walking Tourists blog with his wife Lisa in 2011. Beginning with exploring their backyard of Omaha, The Walking Tourists expanded coverage to the Midwest, exploring places on and off the beaten path. Tim loves sharing stories about people and places in his native state of Nebraska. Tim’s stories of Omaha led to greater opportunities, including writing the books “100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die” , “Unique Eats and Eateries of Omaha”, and “100 Things to Do in Nebraska Before You Die”. Tim is the primary author of both books, with Lisa handling the social media and promotional efforts.
As a former community journalist for about 10 years, Tim’s background also includes working as a project manager and a team manager for telecom account managers. His love for writing led him back to the profession as a freelance writer. Besides travel, Tim enjoys writing about personal profiles, sports, military and veterans attractions, as well as minority issues and accomplishments.
Tim and Lisa have two adult children from his first marriage, as well as three cat kids – Gus, Lassiter and Shawn.
