His passion in understanding the art of influence, along with his fine art and design background helped him develop simple, creative and integrated ideas of marketing solutions that capture consumers’ behavior.
As a student in Ontario College of Art and Design, professors called Tim “the most artistic rebel”. He created one of his final sculpture projects by picking up other students’ scraped and useless wood pieces, spent less than 2 hours in the studio and got one of the highest mark in class. This is how much he believes in the power of packaging stories and simple communication behind big ideas.
Tim has over 7 years of experience in Digital Marketing. In 2005, he founded a boutique web design and e-marketing agency Kluu. In 2007, he started to look into online word of mouth for business and worked with local organizations like modeling agencies, colleges and local stores as a consultant in Toronto.
