Tom has played music in one form or another as long as he can remember. He played saxophone in the school bands and began playing guitar at age 13. His passion for music continued throughout his college years at Plattsburgh State where he continued to play in bands, took music classes, and focused on the guitar and bass.
It was at Plattsburgh that Tom and some friends formed the band, "Ominous Seapods." After college they went on to tour the country from coast to coast and recorded 5 CD's.
Tom then went on to compose and perform with Pittsburgh based modern dance company, "Attack Theatre." He performed with them on both guitar and bass throughout the U.S. as well as Japan, Indonesia, The Philippines, and Germany.
He now teaches guitar and bass and plays with Get Up Jack, Raisinhead, and several other area projects.
