Tom’s passion is energizing and inspiring audiences to take control of their lives, and to become visionaries of their own future. He has made his mark as an enthusiastic, authentic, humorous and compassionate speaker and author. He inspires others to take transformative control of their lives by creating simple and actionable steps to turn their “someday dreams” into reality. He has been described as, “A breath of fresh air in a world where we can have difficulty catching our breath in the midst of self-doubt.”
Time spent with Tom is time well spent.
Tom’s own life experiences and adventures have resulted in a winding path on the road to self-discovery and self-fulfillment. He has: been a graphic designer; owned and operated Murray Hill Pottery Works, a successful pottery studio; bartended; traveled the world buying beautiful things with someone else’s money; taught math through art to kindergarten students; and worked in drug and alcohol recovery. He also once worked twelve hours a day, seven days a week, as the “Brinemaster” in an industrial pea-canning factory that supplied prisons and institutions.
Very possibly during a mid-life crisis, Tom decided to spread his wings and move from his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Los Angeles. Well aware of the cliché, he bought a convertible and drove west until he hit the ocean, and landed in Venice Beach.

This is Who I Am!
Forgive the world for the unrealistic expectations we will never meet, so we can finally forgive ourselves for not measuring up to the impossible. Together let’s discover what makes you uniquely you and watch you shine.
Life is a journey of self-discovery and we need to do our best to see the beauty in ourselves and everything and everyone around us. We need to learn to love and celebrate everything that we are. To love ourselves so much that the love overflows into the lives of others and changes them and helps them become the best ‘me’ that they can be.
• Find a courage within you that you
never knew you had
• Learn to create and love the self you
have always wanted to be.
• Learn to celebrate everything that you
are and hold nothing back.
Life's challenges have made us more accepting, more compassionate and somehow braver. Brave enough to know we don’t always fit in and brave enough not to.
Step out of the shadows and into your own power holding a confident contented knowing as you step up to your life and say to the world, the simple words that hold neither pride nor shame, “This is who I am.”
Dream With Your Mind
How often do we ask the question, “How can I move forward with my life? How can I get a better job? Have a better relationship? How can I become a better, more abundant me?” Essentially, “How can I accomplish my goals? My dreams?” How many times do you need to be the recipient of frankly the less than helpful advice of “Well, you need to get out of your own way!” or “Well you know your obstacles are just your mind!”
What is it that gets in your way? What is it that stops you? Is there a voice in your head saying things like, ‘Well, maybe I’m not smart enough,” or “I think those kinds of dreams are for other people,” or “I’m too old to start that.” Develop a plan to break down those obstacles into manageable bites and give them the boot once and for all.
• Learn to see all of life as an opportunity.
• Understand how to recognize self-created obstacles
head on, and eliminate them.
• Explore how powerful and life changing our
minds can be.
And if you ever catch yourself thinking things like, “Well, those kinds of dreams are for other people!” know that that’s exactly what the “other people” are thinking about you. Because…they are.
Find Your Kintsugi Gold
Reveal the undiscovered you, because absolutely no one is just like you. We are made up of a lifetime of experiences — fragments and pieces that have made us unique. Some are sharp, jagged and ill fitting like an unwanted puzzle piece. Others are a perfect fit. When we take a closer look at all of our parts, and decide we are going to value, embrace and celebrate everything that we are, we reveal a new, beautiful and undiscovered work of art.
• Create a road map to becoming the
• Love the self you have always wanted
• Open your mind to the possibilities
life has to offer.
It’s time to share the amazing you with the rest of the world. Because no one. Absolutely no one is just like you. We were all born to shine. Don’t allow those who choose to live in the shadows rob you of your light. I say crank it up a notch and blind those bastards!
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a lacquer of powdered gold. This repair method celebrates each artifact's unique history by emphasizing its fractures and breaks. Kintsugi pottery is often considered even more beautiful than the original.

"Working with Tom was a comfortable, fun and enlightening way for me to get clear on goals and obstacles I've created that get in the way. His straightforward tactics, blended with kindness, and just the right dosage of "new ageyness" was what I needed to create a game plan for myself with built in motivational stop measures.

Are you the kind of person who likes to communicate through the spoken word? I know I am. If you are as well, I offer one-on-one coaching sessions to assist you in identifying and pushing past obstacles and setting a life path to help your dreams become a reality.
If you are unfamiliar with the transformational coaching process, no need to stress. We can have an initial conversation at no charge and determine what you would like to accomplish and if I’m the coach that can help you achieve those goals. All of my coaching sessions are relaxed and conversational. In some instances there is homework assigned to help us maximize our time together and get you moving forward. And sometimes it’s about thinking out loud and having someone to bounce your thoughts and ideas off of. Maybe you just want to have someone to work through the manual, “Reveal Your Undiscovered Self” with. I find nothing more fulfilling than helping others create lives that are maybe more than just a little bit miraculous. Together, we can make that happen. Just click on the TF or email icon below and send me an email and we'll set up a time to talk.
"I once tried to follow a map I drew for my life, and then I realized a cartographer I am not - an adventurer perhaps - a dreamer no doubt. This is a good thing, as I realize the Universe has chosen an uncharted course for me. I do my best to watch for the guideposts it sets along the way. My sails are set & the wind is full."
