Biography: Tim lives and breathes technology. Growing up, he would disassemble just about everything in sight, and take every opportunity to browse the local electronics stores.

His knack for organization, intuition for problem-solving, and enthusiasm for machines helps him feel at home in Armor Tech's store and repair labs.

With occupational proficiency in industrial automation and machine building, and educational experience from College of DuPage's Robotics Club and NIU's Engineering Technology program, Tim applies a wide breadth of knowledge to his position.
