In a previous professional life, Tim worked as an audio engineer, and in 2011 co-developed a completely digital production environment in Seoul. These days with music he leans more into writing.
From Seoul to Shanghai he’s since spent the majority of his time in interactive entertainment, starting in QA, moving into UI / UX design, and then rediscovering a passion for the technical and focusing on programming.
