Tim was born and raised in Merced, CA. In 1997 he built his first commercial website as a 7th grader. (See it here) Tim also managed the computer systems and websites of several rural school districts during 1999-2004. Continuing to cultivate his passion for websites, technology and entrepreneurship, he started ICTS (Innovative Computing Technology Solutions, LLC). ICTS had customers ranging from Wireless Support Services, Inc. to Heritage Management Group. Juggling post-secondary education and a business proved to be a little much, and ICTS was dissolved. A lot of the original website customers of ICTS have followed Tim to Sunny Day Online. From 2002-2004 he attended Merced College earning an Associate of Arts degree in Social Sciences. From 2004-2005, he attended California State University Fresno, pursuing a degree in Business, concentrating in Information Systems. He left Fresno State in 2005 to take a job with the State of California Department of Justice that he holds to this day as an Associate Information Systems Analyst (Specialist) where he performs complex analysis of computer systems and software. Tim is a member of the California Shorthorn Breeders Association Board of Directors where he serves as Sec./Treas. He also is a member of the Fresno Underground Gardens Conservancy Board of Directors where he serves as Treas. He is active in the Merced County Ag/Arts/Nature Tourism Committee, Friends of the Merced County Fair, Carolwood Pacific Historical Society, American Shorthorn Association, Merced County Fair Beef Bred Project and more.
