Remember that scene in The Iron Giant when Hogarth discovered the Giant in the forest? Since attaining his degree in Radio-Television-Film from The University of Texas, he has mainly worked as an editor on feature films such as On The Line, Monstrum, and Apollo 10 ½. He has also worked on productions such as Heist: The Musical which was part of the Frank Denius Showcase partnered with SXSW.

Since interning at Austin Film Festival, he has held the position of Shorts Programmer, and now Film Competition Director where he has been able to grow his passion of finding passionate stories and new voices in film. His first cycle as Film Competition Director has been full of excitement as he programmed a slate of over 40 feature films and 100 short films. Tim spends his spare time on a bike, swimming in Barton Springs, or sleeping in the hammock on his patio with his cat.
