Tim P Jones, author of “CUT THE CHAOS – The Ultimate Guide to Residential Remodeling” is a Chula Vista native. Growing up in the 60‘s & 70’s, he has seen his city grow from a quite 50,000 residents to over 200,000 today.
In his youth, it was not his dream to become an architect. He enjoyed sports, building model cars, and camping. As time progressed, it was clear that physical competitions would not bring about his greatest accomplishments. So he focused his attention on intellectual learning. Mathematics and memorization would prove to be his strengths. After high school, his interests turned to horticulture, specifically landscape construction. But, as fate would have it, opportunity knocked in the form of a drafting position with a small firm in his home town. He took the job and quickly advanced in this field. With seven years of apprenticeship under his belt, he decided to go out on his own and start a business providing drafting services.
Within two years a desire to become an architect entered his mind and heart. The goal was set, a timeline was applied, and the journey began. Over the next seven years he completed the state examination process, and in 1993 he was presented his license to practice architecture in the State of California. The rest, as they say, is history.
“Covering the last 23 years”, he would tell you, “could fill an entire book in itself”. He’s currently working on that book. As for “CUT THE CHAOS”, that came to him in an early retirement phase. After 20 years of practice, he left the profession to explore personal development, spiritual enlightenment, and inner peace. In the space of two years, he discovered that what he enjoyed most about his profession was designing homes, remodels and room additions. He immediately set out to write his first book, “CUT THE CHAOS”. When he became a published author, it was clear and evident that he must return to his profession, this time with an emphasis on teaching. He now serves his community with a passion that is unmatched in this area. He is simply the best at what he does… and what he does is create success! He solves problems for people, and he discovers solutions where none before existed.
