About me

Gender MALE
Location Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
Introduction My name is Tim ONeill and our son Connor was born in 2002 with a severe heart condition requiring life saving open heart surgery at 5 days of age in Melbourne, Australia to reconstruct his Aortic Arch, Aortic & Mitral Valves. The story doesn't end there having further open heart at two years of age and very recently in December 2008. Being an extremely passionate person for the heart kids cause, this motivated me to kick off an uptrade challenge in Adelaide, Australia with funds from the final item traded to be donated to Heartkids of South Australia. I commenced trading with a clothes zipper respresenting the scar many of our heart kids have and concluded with a Limited Edition Sir Don Bradman A.C. Commemorative Edition.

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

I wasn't fond of general science .. but it would have more likely been me smashing the frozen rose. I was the cheeky one playing pranks.
