Originally from Scranton, Pennsylvania, Tim is the son of a teacher (his Mother, Lisa) and an insurance professional (his late Father, Timothy T.). With this background in mind, Tim started a financial advisory practice through MassMutual Pittsburgh in 2015 with a goal to educate clients and deliver advice. That practice has grown to serve clients in all ends of the country by helping those who are serious about their finances make more productive and efficient decisions with their money.
He founded Compass Rose Financial in 2020 to continue to serve his clients using a fee-based, comprehensive financial planning approach. In addition to planning and advice, Compass Rose Financial features relationships with world-class insurance carriers and investment managers to help deliver high-end solutions to its clients. By offering both standalone planning and the solutions a successful plan calls for, Tim understands financial planning through both a technical and real-world lens. Tim enjoys being actively involved in his clients’ financial lives and looks forward to the real-life benefits of their prudent financial planning. His greatest joy is to see a client retire with the peace of mind of knowing that they are prepared, buy their first house, send their children to college, or take that once-in-a-lifetime family vacation.
Based in Pittsburgh, Tim is involved in many local non-profits – as a board member, a committee chair, or as a loyal supporter. He focuses his volunteerism on causes that seek education equality, environmental protection, and affordable healthcare for children.
A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Tim is a lover of all things Pitt and enjoys giving back to the University whenever possible. While in school, Tim confirmed his interest in financial services via an internship with a wealth management firm in Dublin, Ireland.
Outside of the office, Tim enjoys life and its adventures with his wife, Hannah. Tim is always up for a friendly round of golf, a ski trip to the mountains, or a small-venue concert featuring a band he’s never heard of. Tim loves to travel both domestically and internationally and likes to plan vacations around the next meal and beverage. He has a deep interest in maps and geography, the basis of which is the namesake of Compass Rose Financial.
