Resides: New South Wales

Age: 28

Occupation: Butcher's shop assistant

Born and raised in the Hills district in Sydney, Tim was part of a close family alongside parents Emy and Joey and sister Steph. 

After high school he commenced an Engineering degree at the University of Technology Sydney but deferred after 12 months, opting to take to the skies and travel, following his love for food.

He experienced the best sandwich of his life in Florence, the best jamon and bread in Barcelona and recalls eating his way through London’s Borough Markets.

After returning home he started a Communications degree majoring in Media Arts Production at the University of Western Sydney, but after graduating in 2013, his desire to work with food continued to call.

He saw a job advertised at the acclaimed Victor Churchill Butchers and for three years has worked as an assistant, learning the tricks of the trade.

Supported at home by his girlfriend Chelsea, a kindergarten teacher, Tim says he loves being outdoors and exercising when not in the kitchen.

His dream is to one day open his own BBQ joint, with the working kitchen functioning around the smoker, prepping not only meats but vegetables and even desserts.
