Director and founder
Tim is a civil engineer and downtown enthusiast, passionate about connecting people who see Shreveport’s potential. He enjoys a good bike ride, cocktail, coffee, or conversation.
Moving from Dallas just a few short years ago, he was pleasantly surprised to enjoy every minute of the smaller city and the tight connections running through the people. He became involved through writing and exploring and sharing ideas about what makes a city great. Re-Form was born out of what he saw as the key issue defining Shreveport: finding areas of our underpopulated city that needed to be invested in and re-formed to help address today’s challenges. It’s exciting to him to hear from national speakers about what works for cities and learn how to apply them to Shreveport; educating local leaders and leaders in the community on how to move forward. However, Tim sees educating Shreveport’s leaders as only one piece of the puzzle, the other is getting the citizenry involved in small projects that make their block of the community better. If Shreveport’s leaders can be in tune with the citizenry, and the citizens can in turn trust local leaders, then the city’s trajectory can only be pointed upwards.
