Tim grew up in Detroit and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Composition from the University of Chicago. He worked for 13 years at Sam Ash Music on 48th Street in Manhattan, initially selling keyboards and drum machines and then worked his way up to General Manager of Sam Ash, and then Manny's Music.
The experience on 48th Street taught him the importance of technical knowledge, creative problem solving, and to always listen to your clients.
Tim joined Dale in 2005, and shortly after implementing a new computer system, he launched an integrated e-Commerce presence across Amazon, and daleproaudio.com which he continues to maintain.
A favorite quote comes from his friend Steve Pisani - "The line between success and failure is very thin."
