Tom has immersed himself in the world of guitars ever since the age of 12. Before starting TR Guitars in 1984, Tom taught himself to play guitar and eventually became interested in being able to fix his own guitars, and eventually to build his own guitar. Many bands have been graces with Tom’s playing and singing skills including ‘Dead Man’s Party’, the world’s top Oingo Boingo tribute, as well as ‘We Are Devo’ an exciting Devo cover group.
When he’s not working, Tom likes to play soccer, drink German beer and hike. He is also a reserve firefighter for OCFA and a Ski Patrol EMT in Big Bear. He loves spending time with his wife and daughter in their small town of Silverado.
