Montour Spartans' Head Coach Lou Cerro took Tim under his wing as a manager and worked side by side with the coach. In his freshman year, Tim started writing down ideas for feature films at the lunch table or in classrooms during study hall. Cerro was one of Tim's mentors high school, his first feature film story he wanted to write was about a young man living on the streets and a high school football coach takes him in and later on becomes a football player titled "Thomas Allen". Tim's first film story became the first feature film he wrote at Point Park University, he still continues to work on the screenplay today.
