Outside of Nous

Tim’s first career was as a professional musician, performing with and administering many of Australia’s leading orchestras and ensembles. He then spent several years at the University of Melbourne, most recently working with the internal management consulting team.

Tim holds an MBA from the Melbourne Business School, and both Bachelor and Masters (research) degrees from the University of Melbourne in Music.

In his spare time...

Tim’s loves include good food and wine, in particular that of Spain where he tries to travel each year to enjoy it – possibly too much. He likes to hear as much live music as he can, and in summer he can be found on Sundays playing with his local pub cricket team.
