Tim is the co-founder and Chief Executive Invention Officer of SP@CE. Never heard that title before? That’s because Tim invented it. A Virginia native hailing from Portsmouth, Tim studied physics and mathematics at the University of Virginia, graduating in 2004. Over the next 10 years, he completed two law degrees, practiced law at a top DC firm, backpacked across 27 countries, ran a series of entrepreneurial projects, and moved to New York City to work in international economics-based litigation. In 2013, Tim’s entrepreneurial drive and interest in the history of US innovation brought him back to Charlottesville where he has since been laying the foundation for an innovation district.
