Not quite sure if he is cruising into, past, or through his midlife crisis, Tom finds himself with the belief that there are a lot of stories to tell. A jack of many trades, he has worked in education, retail, and not for profit industries. High school teacher, corporate trainer, fundraiser and stockboy cover the span of his work. A proud graduate of Calvin University, he has never lost his love of a good history or a good argument. He has always believed that the story of an individual is just as important as the story of a nation.
