Tim grew up in England where he went through the classical English school system. Around age 17, he started to find interest in art. He told his councilors that he was leaving the university to study fine art and their response was less than favorable. In art school he thought he was going to be a painter until he found industrial design. Leaving painting he fell in love with design and went on to do his post graduate work at the RCA in London. After the RCA, he moved from London to San Francisco and came to what was the precursor of IDEO. An incredible rare exception these days, Tim has been with the same company, IDEO, since 1987 and has yet to come across a place that could be more fun!
