Born in Surrey and grew up in Santa Barbara, California.
He has been on and off the street for about 12 years.
Tim spends a lot of his life on trains, hopping them and traveling all over North America. He will often stay in a location for awhile, long enough to get a job and a place to stay.

Advice to young people thinking of a life on the street:
“Go to school and find something you like to do, and learn a lot about it.” Also “don’t believe what you see on T.V or read in the paper, but learn to make your own judgments.”
