The narrator
Following a 40-year career with IBM in technology, management and consulting, Tim has successfully created a second career as an audiobook narrator.

His IBM experience provided a broad range of business experience in sales, marketing, strategy, planning, operations, organization, management, and leadership. His varied assignments took him to Europe, Japan, and China.

Tim and his wife live in Central Pennsylvania.  He practices Tai Chi and enjoys an ongoing chess competition with a lifelong friend. He has been a devoted Trekker since the first episode of the original series.

Tim is a member of the Mental Health Ministry at his local parish church, where he also contributes his skill in technology and audio production..
Tim has completed over 35 audiobooks, working with Blackstone, Emerald House, Two Words Publishing, Crossroad Press, and a number of self-published authors. He is the narrator of choice for the Peter Brandt series written by Martin Roy Hill.

His baritone voice conveys authority and expertise. Director Christine Pierce Rooney says "Tim has a voice of authority. People want to believe what he says."

Tim continues to work with many of the premier coaches including Scott Brick, Pat Fraley, Sean Pratt, Paul Alan Ruben, Carol Monda, Shannon Parks, and Joel Froomkin.

His home studio is modelled after a mastering studio and built with guidance from John Brandt and GIK Acoustics.

From the listeners

For Empty Places..."Once I started this book - I could not stop as I was completely drawn in. The narrator did a great job in pacing and ratcheting up the tension through his vocal skills"

For The Last Refuge..."This is a great sequel and am looking forward to more adventures with Peter Brandt. The narrator, Tim Danko, is perfectly suited to this story. He has a great tenor voice which embodies exactly as I would imagine the battle-scarred Peter Brandt."

For The Fourth Rising..."A book to appeal to conspiracy theorists.  Simply written, it is an easy read, made increasingly enjoyable by the narration of Tim Danko. His p!easant sounding voice is well modulated, with individual voicing s for the disparate protagonists, and he reads with an understanding of the text."
