In Australia, the great destination for aspirants is America. For Tim too America is the place where you want to go, where everything is big, where Silicon Valley, New York and Broadway are. With bigger things happening in America, the market there is big too. So, in the mid 90s, having finished his degree, Tim moved from Sydney to Silicon Valley where he ran a multimedia company as its Chief Operating Officer, working not on a website but on CD ROMs and doing productions and things like that. Their clients were people like ASA, Lucent, 3Com and other big Silicon Valley multinationals.
There Tim climbed to a superior level, getting really large projects, like those for Hewlett Packard, where they spent a quarter of a million dollars on a 5 min video that only 30 people were ever going to see. Tim got some great business experience there.
