Steve Dildarian (born November 3, 1969) is an American former advertising copywriter who is the creator, writer, producer and voice of Tim in the HBO animated television series The Life & Times of Tim (2008-2012).[1]


Dildarian grew up in East Brunswick Township, New Jersey[2] and graduated from Glassboro State College (now Rowan University).[3] During his advertising career, he worked for several ad agencies, including BBDO and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.[3] In 2006, Dildarian created an animated short film called Angry Unpaid Hooker, which won the best animated short at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, and is the basis for The Life & Times of Tim.[1] Dildarian's animation is characterized by a raw, minimalist, two-dimensional style - similar to Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-head series. Along with MJ Otto, Dildarian also starred in a web series entitled KAB man. The series was commissioned by Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to raise awareness about environmental issues. It is composed of three five-minute episodes available on YouTube and on KAB man's companion website,[4]
