Tom was born and grew up on Long Island, New York. He comes from a very theatrical family...an opera singer father, a child vaudeville star mother, a dancing priest brother and a Rolling Stones cover band Mick Jagger brother. Tom performed in many shows in both high school and college.
Tom moved to Texas in 1978 and has been working in food service for 50 years....as Executive Chef at the Apparel Mart in Dallas, over 20 years in corporate feeding at IBM, Bank of America and Microsoft. He currently teaches cooking classes at Central Market Plano.
Tom has been a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church for over 16 years where he sings in the choir, serves as cantor at Sunday masses and feeds "the masses" at the Choir's annual Pops Concert in June.
In his spare time, Tom enjoys travel...especially trips to NYC to see the latest Broadway shows...and cruising the 7 seas.(He has a side business with Cruise Planners, assisting customers with booking cruises all over the world!)
He also enjoys spending time with his granddaughter, Ella.....whom he has already been taking to theatrical productions since she was 4!
He is SO excited to be performing in the Follies!
