Doctor + Writer + Director + Producer + Actor

An aeromedical retrieval specialist, GP anaesthetist and film maker, Tim graduated from Medicine at Monash University and Film at The Victorian College of the Arts. He's in the unique position of being able to combine medical and artistic careers. As a film maker he seeks to blend creativity with a humorous commentary on humanity and society. His latest film, Aboriginal Heart, is based on his own experiences as a doctor working in a remote Indigenous community in Northern Australia and after premiering at Sydney Film Festival, played at London Film Festival and in Venice. It was also the recipient of awards for Best Indigenous Film at both St Kilda and Heart Of Gold Film Festival in Queensland.

While concurrently doctoring with the Royal Flying Doctor Service Tim is working on a number of short and feature film projects and is also co-medical advisor and fact checker for the ABC documentary series, Ask The Doctor.
