Over the years of his flight training he owned and operated an excavation company and was also employed by Surmeier & Surmeier inc.

His education includes multiple classes at South West Illinois College, and has since transferred to SLU to further his education in aviation management. Tim has a long family history in aviation, his grandfather, father, and brother are pilots, though Tim is the first to become a professional pilot. His aspirations include continuing his professional development, and employment and on the lighter side of things a sea plane rating and to participate (fly) competitive aerobatics.
