As director of advisor development at Buckingham Strategic Wealth, Tim designs and implements focused professional and personal development programs for our advisors around the country.

A central theme drives Tim’s work: Personal finance is more personal than it is finance. Regardless of our income or net worth, Tim believes it is our underlying values and goals that drive our behavior with money, which ultimately determines our satisfaction in work and life.

Tim is a husband and father first and lives in Charleston, South Carolina, where he and his wife, Andrea, are the proud parents of two boys, Kieran and Connor, and are active members of their community. Outside of personal finance, Tim’s favorite pursuit is music consumption and performance. He is also part of a group dedicated to serving the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere, Nicaragua, through micro-finance and entrepreneurial ventures.
