Tim has written for some of children’s television’s biggest stars, including Fireman Sam, Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine. As a speaker he shares the tricks of the trade – conjuring exciting stories, creating characters with heart, writing nail-biting action sequences, and above all, making a young audience wee their pants with laughter. He won an Australian Writers Guild Award (AWGIE) for Best Animation, which he dedicated to his twins – his biggest source of hilarity.

Seeing Aardman Animation’s Wallace & Gromit films were a huge inspiration for me as a teenager, so it’s been a big thrill to work as a writer with Aardman on a couple of projects. I even got to meet Wallace and Gromit and totally geeked out.
I’ve written for shows seen on Disney XD, Nickelodeon and Netflix, as well as ABC, Channel Seven, Nine and Ten. I’ve even been paid to write animated shows for YouTube.
Every script I write, every line of dialogue, every joke, I’m always thinking about the audience. I’m absolutely passionate about delivering the most entertaining and enthralling story for my viewers.
Not seen me… but you can hear me do voices in Go Jetters and Thomas & Friends.
