Tim’s fascination with fish, and the habitats in which they thrive, started with snorkeling in small streams as a child in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. From spending months on commercial fishing vessels in the North Atlantic and Bering Sea as a fisheries observer, to classifying streams along the west coast of Vancouver Island early in his career, Tim has developed a passion for managing sustainable natural resource development, as well as habitat protection and restoration. It is this passion which inspired Tim to pursue a career in environmental consulting.
As a manager in Hatfield’s Environmental Monitoring and Assessment group, Tim brings expertise related to environmental design and construction mitigation, fish habitat offsetting and restoration, aquatic effects monitoring, and environmental permitting. Bringing this expertise to other groups within the company provides Tim the opportunity to work with a multi-disciplinary pool of talented staff which is the most rewarding part of the job. Tim is excited about the opportunities for Hatfield and our clients to continue innovating in green infrastructure by combining climate change resiliency, habitat restoration, and Traditional Ecological Knowledge through collaboration with local Indigenous communities.
Tim’s second job is hockey dad, and with two boys playing minor hockey, his weekends (and early weekday mornings) are spent mostly at the rink; however, mountain biking and trail building is how he likes to spend the summers (hockey off-season) when not hiking or camping with his family.
