I, Timo, have spent many years involved in some way with the Christian music industry and has seen well over 400+ shows.

Have an awesome son, Tyler, who is now 14 & likes video games & fixing his car.

Began my adult career as a regular Army soldier & currently work at State Farm Insurance in Complex Claims. I graduated with a B.A. in Mass Communications in Broadcast Journalism from Winthrop University & hold the CPCU, FLMI, AINS, ALMI, AIC, AIS & ACS insurance designations along with the EOM Level 1 Certification.

Run an automated online radio station & website “Casting Such a Thin Shadow” which has given me the opportunity for several live telephone interviews over the years. I DJ & produce an online radio show currently for Ripper Radio which airs primarily in the USA, but also in Japan & Great Britain. As far as the music on this site goes, the genres reach from the 60s or even earlier to literally tomorrow! The station runs 24/7 as of September 2020.

Toastmasters, I have completed my CL, CC & ALB public speaking designations while holding the VP of Education & Treasurer offices.

Write music reviews (Song of the Day) for Indie Vision Music.

Aspired to be a news reporter & have considered producing or directing newscasts. Here at State Farm, I have considered the following areas: Creative Services to work on video production, commercial underwriting, talent acquisition or leadership.

Prepped for the voice for Quinn Ravensword for a television series The Last Dragonslayer which is being helmed by Kandy Kane from the shock rock band Rackets & Drapes, but is currently in hiatus.

As a wannabe musician, I play bass guitar & drums & dabble in electric/acoustic guitar & have amps, mics, 2 basses, acoustic electric & an electric guitar, electronic drums, 2 amps, 1 separate head, mixer, violin. I have never found any like minded individuals nearby that were ever interested in music. Yeah it has been a lonely struggle. Most of my fave musicians have rarely been heard of by most & those that have have left the Christian realm. IE Underoath

Several pets- Pics are in the pets section.
