Tim met the Jesuits while earning a B.A. in political science at the College of the Holy Cross. He entered the Maryland Province in 2008 after a stint as a copy editor for the federal government. A graduate student at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Tim moonlights as an associate editor at TJP. He desires God's love and grace, and to win the New Yorker's cartoon caption contest (in that order).
