Tim with Parents


Tim Harris

“If you dream it you can do it.”

This is a quote from Walt Disney that has inspired Tim his whole life. Tim is a man with a dream. His dream was to one day own his own restaurant. In 2010 Tim’s dream became a reality. For five wonderful years Tim was the proud owner of Tim’s Place Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Then he decided to do something even more amazing.

Tim started traveling the world to spread his message of love and inspiration to all through his motivational speaking events. Tim looks to break down barriers, and get rid of any stereotypes associated with individuals who have Down syndrome, and inspire the whole world to follow their dreams.
