    Born and raised in New Jersey, Tim studied music in Philadelphia and New York City, receiving his BM degree from the Manhattan School of Music.

    While studying at MSM, Tim took private instruction from jazz drumming great Joe Morello and vibist David Friedman.
    Upon graduating, Tim studied vibes with Caribbean Jazz Project's Dave Samuels.

    Collectively these associations have molded a solid musical foundation for Tim's style.
