Tom is a man defined by family, work, and fixing things. What drives him? Learning how things work so that problems can be solved. He loves finding the potential in everything, whether in people or the projects he is working on; he sees the diamond in the rough. Time in the military fueled his desire to learn. He embraced technology, worked in law enforcement, and became a teacher. His philosophy: “The only thing you can change on the path to success is yourself. Be willing to adapt.” Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge tops his list.
