Hi, I’m Tim Hamby. Welcome to my site. It’s everything a blog shouldn’t be. Unfocused. Inconsistent. Not very well promoted. Mostly just a bunch of stuff that I like, find interesting or worth digitally archiving for one reason or another somewhere other than Facebook. But it’s also kind of like a desk drawer. You might not know what all’s in there, but if you sift through it, you’ll probably discover a few cool little knick knacks.
My site is heavy on surfing and surf videos (I curate only the best stuff- great music, action and art direction); abundant iphonography (I’m a die-hard amateur and Instagrammer, and my tastes run to landscapes- especially beaches, marshes, waterways and tropical settings); numerous articles, including many published works, most on surfing and action sports, as well as a number of pieces on marketing, advertising, branding and design; shots of my family and friends (married for 22 years with two teenage daughters); some personal essays; a few interesting music videos… I think that’s about it!
Professionally, I founded and worked as Creative Director at my own marketing, branding and design firm for about 15 years; served as Executive Director for the Southeast Volusia Advertising Authority promoting tourism in New Smyrna Beach and the surrounding areas; worked as Director of Social Media at Web.com for 3 years; and most recently served as Director of Corporate Communications for HomeASAP, a really innovative real estate technology firm that provides a variety of products and services for real estate professionals including a suite of Facebook apps, and a new national home search/ lead gen platform called Search Alliance.
