"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tom: not only because of his truly personable nature, but also because he would constantly share his wisdom gathered across a cross disciplinary career, all with a patient demeanor.
His aptitude to truly listen to people and understand their needs, combined with a passion for translating any messages into compelling, understandable stories not only makes him unique in the design field, but also eliminates any sense of traditional selling. These qualities make him a great executive in a variety of creative fields."
