Founder & Chief Architect
With a life-long love of computers and technology, at thirteen years old, Tim and his best friend wanted to expand their knowledge on the design and development of computer programs. With a gift of “how-to” books on programming, the team developed their first application built on their love of role-playing and dice games. Progressively, their gaming needs required more complex programming including elaborate graphics and randomization algorithms.
By the time Tim graduated high school, he was a partner in a web and business development management company and was a pioneer in the development of customized e-commerce and online credit card transaction programs. This ground-breaking technology was scooped up by dozens of local twin cities businesses and prominent New York clients.
With a growing awareness of enterprise commerce needs, Tim founded Lighthouse Software Solutions in June of 2000 and immediately acquired e-commerce customers in need of his expertise. In the years ahead, Tim continued with his passion for solving complex software development issues and has grown his business into a multi-million dollar development shop with a strong staff of like-minded developers. High profile companies that utilize Lighthouse Software Solutions include Ally Bank, Wells Fargo, Thompson Reuters, Digital River, City of Minneapolis to name a few.
In 2010, Tim founded his second company, Point of Care Decision Support (PCDS), a healthcare software company which focuses exclusively on building chronic disease clinical decision support (CDS) software for use at the point of care. Tim is determined to bring a different perspective to the medical apps field by combining validated evidence-based medical research with industry-standard best practices which currently include asthma and anticoagulation therapies.
