Steve Dildarian (born November 1969) an American former advertising copywriter who is the creator, writer, producer, and voice of the HBO animated television series, The Life & Times of Tim.  Dildarian grew up in New Jersey, and graduated from Glassboro State College (now Rowan University). During his advertising career, he worked for several ad agencies, including BBDO and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. 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. Dildarian's animation is characterized by a raw, minimalist, two-dimensional style - similar to Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-head series.
