Tim is an expert in privacy, technology and constitutional law and was most recently the first Director of Public Policy at Facebook. Tim was responsible for developing and implementing the company’s interaction with the federal, state, local and international governments and with opinion and policy makers.  He managed these roles as the company grew from 150 million to more than 800 million active users and from 400 employees to more than 3,000.

Prior to joining Facebook, Tim was senior legislative counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union, where he helped advance the constitutional principle of the right to privacy, representing the ACLU before Congress, the Executive Branch and before the media.  For the more than four years preceding his time at the ACLU, Tim served as an associate at the law firm of Dickstein Shapiro where he helped clients navigate interconnecting constitutional, statutory, political and policy challenges.
Tim holds a bachelor’s degree with honors from Georgetown University and a J.D. from the law school at the University of Michigan.
