When he was a child, he fell out with his imaginary friend and had him arrested. He trains weasels to do circus tricks as a hobby. His favourite weasel is 'Crafty Sam'. He loves Wensleydale cheese but refuses to eat it in case it makes him look less masculine. He uses his beard trimmings to stuff cushions. He made two whole pillows when he shaved it off. He first met Joy Seppala at an inter-bank Dungeons and Dragons competition. He was representing Deutsche bank and Joy BNP Paribas. They played each other in the final. Tim let Joy win.
