Our Team

The team at timothyj is comprised of two award-winning professionals with a passion for excellence in design, quality and customer service. The perfect partnership ~ a husband and wife team, Tim and Kelly each wear multiple hats, but remain focused on providing the best design for every project they complete.  Our team is also dedicated to giving back to the community through events and open houses in their studio. We are proud of our designs and the finished outcome but just as proud of our involvement in the Historic Walker’s Point community.

The only Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (CMKBD) in Southeast Wisconsin, Tim has dedicated his life to the design industry. His work has been published nationally and he has competed in many design competitions. When he isn’t designing spaces, or judging national competitions, he plays the fiddle in his Irish band, and he and Kelly both enjoy sailing.
