Tim Smith is from Staten Island, New York. He has been involved with the local Deaf community since 2011. Tim first attended the College of Staten Island where he was first exposed to ASL and eventually served as Vice President of the ASL Club and as a member of the board of directors for the local chapter of NYPIRG. During this time, Tim met and became involved with the local Deaf community and decided to dedicate his life to this field.
Tim then attended the Seymour Joseph institute of American Sign Language and graduated in 2015, has a BA in Community and Human Services from SUNY Empire State College, and is NIC certified.
Tim previously served on the board of NYC Metro RID as both a Director at Large and Secretary, and is looking forward to working with both the Deaf and interpreting communities in this new capacity.
