Episode 13 – Timmy O’Neill

Timmy O’Neill’s career in the outdoor industry had taken him in many direction. From his modest start as a cashier at the Old Faithful Gift Shop in Yellowstone, to breaking the-then speed record for climbing The Nose on “El Cap” in Yosemite, to founding Paradox Sports, a non-profit organization that helps disabled individuals participate in human-powered sports and enjoy the great outdoors. With all he has achieved, Timmy continues to expand his horizons physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Recently, he became an ophthalmic technician to work with the Himalayan Cataract Project. Come March, Timmy will be traveling to Ghana to assist with cataract surgeries and help cure preventable blindness. Seriously. He’s like a superhero alpinist or as Timmy puts it, an adventure caregiver.

Kevin met up with Timmy in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado to rap over a couple mics about public transportation, growing up in a large Catholic family, rock climbing, kayaking, and doing good for others. Enjoy!
