Timothy Thomas

I joined roundsquared as a consultant in 2020. 

I was born with Cerebral Palsy. This has challenged me physically and sometimes socially. I have often encountered barriers (real or perceived) that come with having a physical challenge, however I have and do live a full life. At the age of four I was given a motorbike so I could in my own way run, jump and play with my siblings. To this day that action taken by my mother has led me to live a life where I not only understand and experience the power of the dignity of risk but also self-determination and purposeful expression of self. This has enabled me to advocate for others to have the same rights.

To add to my lived experience with disability, I bring to my role as consultant six years as a support worker after completing a Certificate IV and a Diploma in Community Services in 2012. 

I have also concurrently spent the last eleven years as a trainer in the maritime industry after completing a certificate IV in Training & Assessment in 2009. My role was a trainer and assessor in the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard until 2011. The remainder of that time I have spent teaching First Aid, boating safety courses and assisting with Scuba diving training and adaptive diving techniques to the public and diving community within my role as a Master Scuba Diver.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, fishing, diving and camping with family and friends.
