Tim's experience in applied economics began in 1983 after graduating from Texas Tech University when he began his professional career as a registered securities and commodities representative at Dean Witter Reynolds, Inc. While at Dean Witter he honed his skills as a registered commodity representative and began working in the equity finance arena as well. After three years, he was promoted to Syndicate Coordinator and began to expand his interests into mergers, acquisitions and equity financing. In 2011, Tim began his joint tenure with Pro Petroleum, Inc. as its Economist.
Tim also serves as a research cooperator to the Agriculture and Applied Economics Department at Texas Tech University and because of his vast experience in the areas of energy and agriculture has spent several years on the speaker circuit here in the US and abroad.
Tim's management, advisory and energy experience spans three decades; that coupled with his unique approach to applied economics and market analysis in the areas of energy and agriculture have form a foundation for the EnergyWise blog. Tim believes that the entrepreneurial energy generated and the increasingly sophisticated, high-tech string of tools being created gives the US a genuine opportunity to become a net energy exporter instead of a net energy importer.
