Tim is Video/Assignment Editor at Deadspin.com and operates the websites 30fps, Gifulmination.com, and Mocksession. He lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, and is a former communication professor who completed his doctoral coursework at the University of South Florida. Animated GIFs have been used as a form of communication and as an artistic platform for a long time. Tim's approach to creating them by capturing live television and turning small moments into easily-shared and transformative productions has been groundbreaking in its contribution to the grammar of making animated images for the social web. As a Twitter early adopter, he's watched the site go from its text-only "twittr" days to the rich media it now embraces.
