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.

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.
