Tim comes to Senior Housing News with expertise in the sector, having spent two years reporting on the long-term and post-acute care industries. A Wisconsin native, he attended Northwestern University. An interest in creative writing led him to a fiction writing fellowship in New York City and ultimately to graduate school at Washington University in St. Louis. While living in Missouri, he began to do business writing for a Fortune 1000 company. After returning to Chicago, he worked first as a marketing and news writer–working with diverse clients in fields such as travel, technology and law–and then entered the world of business-to-business journalism.
On nice days, he’s probably on the tennis courts in Andersonville, the Chicago neighborhood he calls home. On rainy days, he’s probably on the indoor tennis courts close to the Senior Housing News offices.
