A passion for the hospitality and restaurant industry began close to home for Proof General Manager, Tim Hass.

Tim joined Four Seasons four years ago, first managing the poolside grill, Saguaro Blossom, prior to taking the helm at Proof. Proof's concept speaks close to Tim's heart, with the emphasis on craft beer and approachable, yet inventive, dishes. In his leisure time, Tim enjoys testing out local restaurants and breweries, or firing up his backyard smoker and grill to craft simple, savory meals.
