Traveler Bio

Hi! My name is Timothy, and I love to travel and explore new places. I recently graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in international studies and a minor in intelligence studies. During the pandemic, I spent over a year in Eastern Europe and Turkey, and over the course of my life thus far, I have traveled to more than 25 countries! I applied for and received the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to conduct research on northern Thailand, and more recently, have worked for the U.S. Department of State covering internal affairs and human rights in Iran. I speak German and I'm currently studying Ukrainian. I'm hoping to work in the intelligence community someday.

This fall, I will be visiting Spain and Portugal, and I hope you'll join me for this experience. I'm excited to take you on an adventure and show you the world as it is. Let's explore together!
