Tim Barnes has lived in Boulder for the last 22 years and currently works in the Office of Education and Outreach's Public Visitor Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

He graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1993 with a B.A. in Human Communication and continued for an additional two years after graduation working in the Department of Child Clinical Psychology as a research assistant.

His seven years experience as a U.S. Navy avionics technician and midshipman prior to attending CU gave him the background necessary to teach visitors to NCAR basic atmospheric science concepts.

He enjoys music and has spent most of the last 14 years racing mountain bikes, hanging out with his two sisters, parents, niece and nephews, and traveling the world.
