How did you get started in your field?

Tom is a Brevard County native and has a degree in Graphic Design. He moved to Wisconsin to finish High School and College, where he became an avid Green Bay Packers fan. Tom has been active in the local creative development and marketing scene since 2004, which is when he moved back to Florida after living in Wisconsin for eight years.

While back in Florida, Tom married his wife, whom he met in Wisconsin. Then a few years later, he became a father raising two boys. His boys keep him very busy outside of work. One of his boys is very active in sports and has a 2nd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. He also loves to play flag football, basketball, and softball. The one has a strong mind for engineering and technology. His younger son goes to Code Ninjas on the weekends to learn STEM skills like programming, electronics, Robotics, and 3D printing.

Time at RPS

Tom has been working at Rock Paper Simple since 2016 as a web developer. He has worked together with the Rock Paper Simple team to build several award-winning websites during his history with Rock Paper Simple.

He has a broad range of experience in graphic design, IT, social media, video production, print, web marketing, and web development. The team here at Rock Paper Simple is thankful to have him as our web developer.

Personal Life

When Tom is not making awesome websites, he enjoys spending time with his wife and going to the beach with his two sons. Tom is very busy trying to keep up with all the activities his two boys are in, but when Tom does have some time to relax, he enjoys watching the Green Bay Packers game during football season and enjoys live music. If you bump into him, let him know if any good bands are playing in the area!
