Tim joined the Australia-Indonesia Centre in March 2018.
He has previously worked as a school teacher, of Humanities and Indonesian, and as a copyeditor and consultant for The Jakarta Post, Sahabat Anak and other organisations. He has also co-ordinated copyediting and volunteers for Inside Indonesia magazine since 2016.
Choosing Indonesian language at high school started Tim’s interest in Indonesia, and six months in Java, Bali and Lombok in his first year of university cemented the connection.
He has a Bachelor of Arts (Indonesian and Cultural Studies) from the University of Melbourne, and a Graduate Diploma of Education from RMIT University.
