At Otak we're blessed with cool clients, great projects, and fabulous teammates.
After three years of college, Tim realized that as a fan of the environment and a math and science whiz, he should combine these two and get a master degree in environmental engineering so that he could fetch a decent job. Starting out as an owner’s rep and construction manager, Tim has had a wide-ranging career of leadership, all centered around southwest Washington, where he grew up. While working as a civil engineer, he was elected to the Vancouver City Council and then Mayor of Vancouver (or, as he likes to say, “#1 punching bag”). He continues to help Vancouver move toward becoming a world-class urban city on the Columbia River, working on high-profile projects such as the 84-acre Columbia Palisades Mixed-Use Gateway, Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex, and new buildings on the Vancouver waterfront. Tim is deeply involved in his community, serving on numerous local boards such as the Parks Foundation of Clark County, the J. Scott Campbell Foundation, and the Portland Business Alliance, and finding meaningful ways to volunteer such as helping to construct a garden for a Vancouver elementary school.
