Growing up in small towns along the Mississippi River, Tim O’Connor learned at a very young age the value of hard work. He worked days, nights, and weekends and paid his own way through each school – college, an MBA program, and eventually law school.
Tim is a dedicated athlete. He cycled for the University of San Diego; rode for a small team in Southern California; has hiked the Sierras; sailed the Caribbean; summited Mt. Shasta and Mt. Hood; completed numerous marathons; and between law school and starting his career he pedaled his racing bike from Canada to Mexico.
