Tim Murray (he/him) is the Co-founder and CTO of GWG. He is a programmer and tech aficionado, joke cracker, Jesus-follower, generosity junkie, and all around lover of people, who may or may not know most of the words to any 90s rap song. He brings 20 years of programing and web development experience, a BA in CIS, his epic sense of humor, and exceptional brownie-baking skills to the team. He’s a dad of 4 (yes, the same 4), husband of his high school sweetheart (obvi), former Wall Street bank employee turned entrepreneur, and podcast addict who embraces his wanderlust. He lives in Mérida (Yucatán, México) where he has spent the last 5 years learning and dreaming with his family as they share this adventure called life.
