Living Fort Wayne Spotlight: Tim Zink

Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne were? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city.  In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us. Next in our series is our committee co-chair, Tim Zink. What is your role within LFW and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog? I started off just writing for Living Fort Wayne before becoming co-chair. I have always enjoyed the opportunities to talk to people I wouldn’t otherwise get a chance to talk to and to go to places I wouldn’t otherwise get to go to. I’m sure the people who end up talking to me feel the same about having the opportunity to talk with me. Right? (Please say “yes”). Tell us one thing about your life outside of LFW. (Job, Family, pets, hobbies, etc.) I don’t have a life outside LFW – that was one of the requirements – just kidding. But seriously – one of the hobbies I have (but don’t do as much I used to) is just going out with my camera and getting photos around downtown or the old industrial areas. Those areas have a ton of character and have a story to tell. If you could live any other place in the world, beside FW, where would you live and why? Grand Rapids, Michigan – I like cities about the size of Fort Wayne, plus I also like the Great Lakes. Even though it’s not on Lake Michigan, it’s pretty darn close. The only other option for being next a large body of water without moving is manipulating the waterways to reform ancient Lake Maumee, which used to be next to Fort Wayne. I have a feeling people would frown on that, though. If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in FW? This might seem boring to some since it’s not really social (hey, looking at trees is kind of my thing). I grew up around Cedar Creek just north of Fort Wayne – one area I love a lot is around the Devil’s Hollow area. The way the land looks in that area is unlike any other part of this area. If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song...
