Timothy Ratajczak was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, an honor he shares with Frank Zappa, Spiro Agnew and a host of other dead people.

Timothy is a graduate of Towson University with a degree in Mass Communications. With hindsight, he should probably have majored in something more relevant to the entertainment industry such as law, psychiatry or cosmetic surgery.

Like his partner Sean Murphy, Timothy was raised and educated a Catholic; however, he was excommunicated after he disagreed with the Church’s views on embalming. (Timothy felt it should not be practiced exclusively on the deceased.)

“Hidden Secrets” is the first film he has co-written. In the writing team of Murphy and Ratajczak, Timothy is known as the undisciplined gag man, as he certainly lacks a sense of discipline and has been known to make people gag.

Much to the city’s dismay, he still resides in Baltimore, where he spends the majority of his time writing, collecting books and teaching people how to pronounce his last name (RAT’-uh-chek).
