Tom grew up on the East Coast. As a small child, his mother, who is one of the best ballroom dance teachers in the eastern US, taught him various ballroom dances such as the fox trot, the cha-cha and the swing. While in high school, he held the unofficial standing broad jump record and graduated in the top spot in the most advanced math class. He later earned a Bachelor of Science degree, was a collegiate athlete, and later became a semi-pro athlete.
His IQ is approximately 150. He also holds a US patent which he obtained while working for the US government, and still holds a SECRET clearance. At one point, he had his own consumer electronics repair business on the side. He is also proficient at auto repair, plumbing repair and construction.
He generally contracted his own home while still on the East Coast. About ten years ago, he became a model and actor and is represented by various agencies, one of which is Silver Models, the world’s premier fitness agency, where he was the top-rated fitness model. He has been published both nationally and internationally and has appeared in many films, commercials, and infomercials. To the best of his knowledge, he is the only published male underwear model over the age of 35 in human history. More recently, he relocated to Southern California and is a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist.
His plan in moving to CA is to pursue modeling, acting, and fitness even more vigorously. With 2+ decades experience in health and wellness, he has begun co-authoring a unique self-help wellness book with a female fitness pro in New Zealand. This is in addition to his legal self-help book that he is co-authoring with a lawyer in NC.
Tom also sponsors two children in foreign countries, is an excellent cook, has climbed Mt. Washington (the highest peak east of the Mississippi outside the Appalachians) is semi-fluent in French, is proficient in a variety of sports (billiards, firearms, golf, Jai-Alai, rock climbing, SCUBA diving, skiing, snowboarding, softball, table tennis, tennis, volleyball) has traveled to five countries and 27 US states, and has a great sense of humor.
