Having completed a degree in English Language in 2001, Tim escaped to Japan as a participant of the JET Programme, a government initiative to foster cultural links between Japan and the English-speaking world. After a brief period back in Britain, Tim returned to Japan to work at a private English academy. Much as he was enjoying himself, he knew that this wasn’t quite what he wanted to be doing with his life, so once again to England he returned. He spotted Bournemouth University’s MA in Radio Production about 2 weeks before the course was due to start. He applied and was accepted, which brings us pretty much up to date. Tim has no pets.
