Now he gigs regularly with pop/dance, classic rock and modern rock cover bands. He has also played with KC Roberts in jazz trio playing the restaurant circuit, played percussion with the award winning Latin Alternative band Plan C and played with violinist Dr. Draw. With these and other acts he has been on stage at the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Beaches Jazz Festival, Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards, Milwaukee Pride Festival and has opened for such acts as Cindy Lauper, The Grandmothers of Invention (formerly of Frank Zappa), Teenage Head and Great White.

In 2006 Tim graduated with a Bachelor of Music from Humber College and Thompson Rivers Open University where he studied drums with Paul Delong. His approach to teaching the drums incorporates professional gig preparation with learning necessary techniques to give any student at any level a solid foundation in drumming while enjoying the fun of playing music in the process.
