“All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:3-5

Born in raised in South Hills of Pittsburgh PA, Tim began building at the earliest of ages. He became well known for his creative mindset, and his skills in design and fabrication.
He gained skills and knowledge in high school, leading the technical team for his high schools plays as well a solid leader as he earned his way to the rank of Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts.

Tim attended Drexel University where he completed his quarterly year round, 5 year Mechanical Engineer Bachelors Degree.

Throughout the process he earned 21 months of Mechanical Engineering Co-op design experience at 2 well renowned companies, performing mechanical design and testing on nuclear spec and high speed machinery.

“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”Christopher McCandless

Tim found his experiences thus far in life tie together into a passion for building like none other he had experienced. He began designing and creating custom furniture and other custom fabrication projects.

With his closest of friends also starting small businesses at the same time, they all worked together, starting from scratch growing clients and building a better vision of life and work (or is it work and life? or one in the same?)

The rest is history.

After hiring his Lead Carpenter, Sam Green, the business continued to grow exponentially, not only in success, but in meaningfulness.  What is success without having a purpose?  Sam and Tim work together in harmony, managing and leading a team of others for a common purpose. 

Both Sam and Tim work extremely hard, but only do so because it is commonly the most enjoyable and experiential work experience they have ever been apart of.  (again, is work really work if it doesn’t feel like work?)  Joy and laughter are commonplace in their work environment, as well as, blood and sweat.

Row Galley Modern’s business model revolves around three ships. (note the anchor)

                       Relationship, Craftsmanship, and Leadership

With his Faith foremost, his friends and family with his back, his skills and knowledge paving his steps, Tim took the plunge into a world his ingenuity can grow and expand with no limitations.
