Get to Know Tom
Why I’m a pilot: I was traveling a lot for work and was actually something of a nervous flyer, so I figured if I went and took a lesson in a small plane, I might feel more comfortable. After my first lesson I was hooked!
So, what’s Bankrupt Talent all about? Well, it’s an annual charity event hosted by TKP that involves all these musicians who masquerade by day as bankruptcy professionals, getting together and putting on a show to benefit local charities. It’s an incredible amount of fun and allows me to perform (I play guitar) alongside my brother Steve who plays drums.
Hobbies: I enjoy playing golf…well, most of the time I enjoy it!
