Marco first spoke to Tim when he was called a fag, and slammed into a locker, Marco told Tim that Degrassi is usually a pretty cool place, but not always. Throughout their time spent together Marco continually gives Tim advice, leading Tim to believe Marco had already come out to his father. He runs to Marco's house very upset after his father kicks him out after discovering he was using a gay teen chat website. Later on Tim discovers Marco has not truly come out to his father, making him angry. Although Marco ends up coming out to his father while preforming "Hamlet," which makes Tim smile.

Tim appears in I Against I, helping Marco with his safe sex campaign, which two members of The Friendship Club, Linus and Spinner Mason decide to ruin. Spinner apologizes, although Linus does not.

In Tim's final appearance, Total Eclipse of the Heart, Marco and Tim have begun dating steadily. Although when Marco's ex-boyfriend Dylan Michalchuk returns, things take a turn for the worse as Marco is not yet over Dylan, and is still angry that he cheated on him. Marco attempts to get his mind off of Dylan, and invites Tim to a club, where he kisses him in front of Dylan.
Tim begins to notice the way Marco is acting, and he tells Marco to ignore Dylan. Marco and Tim get into an argument, which ultimately leads to their breakup.
