After starting as a reservationist at Chelsea Pines during graduate school at NYU, Tom then became a travel consultant at two of New York’s most prestigious agencies – ProTravel International and Linden Travel Bureau. Strong relationships with clients and vendors transitioned Tom back to the hotel industry as Sales Manager for Rosewood Hotels’ Caribbean Resorts and then back home to Chelsea Pines.
Tom came to New York City (by way of Michigan, Virginia and Kentucky) where he attended New York University to earn his Masters degree in Directing. During this time he joined the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus, where he met fellow second tenor Jay Lesiger. They soon joined forces personally and professionally.
