  • For online, print, magazines, radio, and television, Tim has conducted more than 2,000 interviews throughout his career with several of the biggest names in the film and television industry. That includes actors Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Halle Berry, Keanu Reeves, Robert De Niro, Viola Davis, Salma Hayek, Nicolas Cage, and Charlize Theron; and filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola, Tim Burton, James Cameron, Kenneth Branagh, Christopher Nolan, Jodie Foster, and Ridley Scott.
  • Tim is the author of the eBook "Direct Conversations: The Animated Films of Tim Burton," which includes a foreword by Tim Burton. Tim interviewed Burton and several of his actors and crew members, and he has done dozens of more interviews for the eBook's second edition, which is in the works.
  • Since 2013, Tim has reviewed films for two major market radio stations in Minneapolis, as well as pair of stations in outstate Minnesota and two major podcasts based in Minneapolis. Also, for eight years he appeared weekly as a film critic for the NBC-TV affiliate station in Minneapolis.


Tim is a veteran entertainment reporter who has written for dozens of network television affiliate websites and major entertainment outlets since 1999. Part of his experience was as the national entertainment news editor for 10 years for the Internet Broadcasting Network (which was eventually acquired by Nexstar Broadcasting), an online platform that at its peak provided written and video content to more than 70 network television affiliates across the United States including sites for ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and The CW. In the fall of 2020, Tim began contributing to Looper as a feature writer, news writer, and interviewer.


While Tim first earned two bachelor of science degrees in political science and law enforcement from Minnesota State University in Mankato, he shifted his career focus to journalism by returning to school at Brown College to earn a certificate in radio and television broadcasting. Tim's writing career began at a small market newspaper outside of Minneapolis, which led to his work in magazines and eventually, online journalism — where he applied his skills as a radio and television broadcaster as well.
