Tymothy Dean

Apprentice Carpenter

Every day is an adventure. At least, that is what Tymothy thinks. A graduate of SUNY Adirondack’s Adventure Sports Program and a whitewater rafting guide at the Hudson River gorge, you can say he brings a lot of adrenaline to the job. He’s always worked outdoors and most recently worked for a landscaping company.

Growing up in a military family with his dad in the Navy, he lived in Japan for a few years and relocated many times before ending up in South Glens Falls. He was attracted to Teakwood because of its well-known reputation for building luxury homes. He relished the idea of working with skilled craftsmen and honing his skills. He hopes what he learns on the job will help him one day realize his dream of building his own home.

“I liked the fact that Tymothy loved being outdoors,” said Jim Sasko. “That meant he wouldn’t be bothered by the cold. As a raft guide, he also has to be cool under pressure, and that’s when I knew he was the right man for the job.”

Tymothy’s favorite side kick is a Maine Coon cat named Dave, who accompanied him on many camping and hiking trips in the Adirondacks. That was until his neighbor took a shining to Dave and started feeding him snacks-a lot of them, too. Dave is now a contented house cat and could stand to lose a few pounds.
