You hear that old line, “join the Navy and see the world.” That was partly true for Tim – Jerusalem, Rome, Bahrain, and the Seychelles – but he mostly saw the confines of his 600X80-foot ship, including one stint of 67 days without docking. So, after six years, he was ready to move to Florida, where he took up studies for an Engineering degree. He eventually transferred to Arizona State, and then decided to take some time off to work fulltime. “You can call it a gap year,” he said. “Maybe a few gap years.” That’s how he ended up at GDS, the company tasked with completing the update of the HDTV and internet at The Resort and Silveridge.
How did Tim come to head the project at the parks? “I volunteered,” he said, then added, “I always volunteer. That’s how I am. That’s how you learn, and that’s my goal – to always learn as much as I can.”
And Tim is learning plenty at the parks, telling us, “We have two good crews and boy, am I glad to have them. I have complete confidence in each of our Maintenance Techs. And if there’s anything we can’t figure out, we have Rhonda – she was once Maintenance Manager, remember.”
