Tim is a man of many hats, about to spend his 12th season at the Ranch in 2020. Raised in Sheldon, Wisconsin, Tim meandered his way to Idaho through many adventures and it was ultimately his sister Ashley that convinced him to come “hang out in Idaho for the summer” with her and Rob. In 2012, Tim was hired as a Pantry Chef, with minimal prior experience. Given the nickname “Google Chef” for his ability to create out of thin air, Tim became motivated to improve his skills and began spending winters working under talented and humble chefs at various resorts throughout the country. During the summer, Tim would return to Red Horse as a guide for several activities and has been a valuable ranch hand in the off season. “Idaho is rich in community and outdoor experiences. I take solace in its mass of public land and rivers; fishing, hunting and mountain biking through the seasons”, he states. Another big reason for Tim staying so long is Idaho’s stunning beauty and ability to attract sensible folk. In his spare time you can find Tim working on batches of sauerkraut, kombucha and kimchi, stemming from his love for Microbiology. Tim’s mantra is “Comparison kills Contentment”. Also, you may catch him kicking back with Princess Bride playing in the background.
