Tom first started working in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies.  As an innovative thinker he was one of the first people to introduce bamboo flooring to North America before demands for eco-friendly and sustainable resources made bamboo a mainstream product. He was the first to bring new product technology into three separate industries. One product he brought into the grocery industry landed him in Maclean’s Magazine as a technology guru. He has also appeared on shows like HGTV “Decked Out” with Paul LaFrance and with Mike Holmes in, “Ultimate Garage” for his LED lighting designs.

Inspired by Jim Carrey’s message delivered in 2014 at MUM University, Tom was drawn to complete this five year book writing adventure. Taking a 4 month sabbatical away from his busy schedule, he set out to share Margie’s life story, her message, and what he has learned.
