Tim Sharp is 27 years old and has autism. At age 11, Tim invented Laser Beak Man – a character who allows Tim to show the world his great sense of humour and intelligence, as well as his original way of looking at life. Laser Beak Man has his own eight-episode animated TV series screening on ABC3, Cartoon Network Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
In 2012, a short film about Tim was shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Tim’s 2014 TEDx talk to a capacity crowd at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House received a standing ovation. He is currently enjoying working with Nicholas Paine and David Morton of Dead Puppet Society as they bring Laser Beak Man to the stage of The New Victory Theatre in New York City in June 2015.
