Tom writes code that makes things happen after you hit the submit button on a web page. He also leads workshops and mentors at the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation helping entreprenuers understand the IT needs of their business ventures.

Tom's roots are in the earth sciences and geographic information systems (GIS). He came to building web sites by way of a chance meeting where the Mosaic web browser was introduced in 1993. Even though Tom has more than 25 years of IT experience, it is still not as many years as he has game mastered Dungeons & Dragons.
