Following his wartime service, Tim was employed in various capacities in County, State and Federal government. He became an expert fraud investigator and this work led him to extensively study human behavior, the art of persuasion, and various methods for resolving difficult situations. He quickly learned that humor is an indispensable tool in human relations.
