Tim is excited to be a co-faciliator for Irondale’s newest round of To Protect, Serve, and Understand (TPSU)! Tim started working with Irondale in the fall of 2020, in its virtual pandemic iteration of TPSU, which brings together local police and community members around food, dialogue, and improvisation, and he now facilitates with the in-person program. Tim is an educator, theatre artist, and researcher who works across the world to bridge cultural divides, promote civic engagement, and explore issues facing communities in innovative ways. In addition to TPSU, Tim uses theater tools to link students from different parts of the United States and the world to dialogue around cultural heritage, politics, and media literacy. Previously, Tim facilitated theater workshops in Jordan, Palestine, Germany, and around the US on topics such as refugee resettlement and fostering anti-racist college campuses. Tim earned his Master’s of Education in International Education Policy from Harvard University and earned his Bachelor’s in Political Science from Principia College.
