An original Irish American Folksinger / Bluesman. Born in Chicago, grew up in Hollyweird. Tim spent an eight year period of his life hitchhiking over 300,000 miles in 26 countries. O'Connor has three songs in the feature film "Dead Calm". A high seas chiller thriller, starring Nicole Kidman, Sam Neill and Billy Zane. In the summer of 1999 Tim made a solo crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean in his sail boat "Theanna". From Nantucket Island to the Netherlands. He lives on his boat in Holland. He has recently completed writing ten books about his mad adventures. The Hitchhiking Poet's songs and stories go together like a hot dog and a bun, the books are done. So are the CD's And the DVD's. " I'm a late bloomer with a sense of humor." Tim O'Connor the Hitchhiking Poet survives by singing and playing his songs and the Blues.
