Timothy has described his career as “letting the work matter, and making sure there are always opportunities for myself and others to work. I aim to by ‘symphonic’ or ‘hyphenated’ - unlimited in my own mind about the opportunities available to me. You have to find your own route to the truth - artistic, emotional, civic, and human - and then you’re able to be an agent of change and find joy in the serious business of living.”
