Welcome to TimothyPate.com

I’m a digital marketer, an amateur photographer, a sucker for longform journalism, an early riser and a believer in progress. I live in Minneapolis with my wife, Brittany, and our cat, Minkus.

By day I’m part of the Mall of America® digital team. You can learn more about my role there by visiting the Resumé + Work page. I recently completed a term as a Member of the Board of Directors for St. Paul Ballet. If you haven’t seen a performance, you should definitely check them out. And I’m a proud Mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities.

On my blog, you can read about my life as it relates to my work as well as what I do during non-working hours. Topics include: my experiences with various digital tools, my views on local and national politics, my travel adventures, my self-education as an amateur photographer and more.

Thanks for visiting.
