At a young age, Tommy was introduced to unique environments and jobs that have stuck with him, drawing him back ever since. At age 22, while living in Montana, he was offered a job working on a fishing boat in Alaska. Following his curiosity and sense of adventure, he instantly accepted the offer. When he got to Alaska he had to hitchhike to his destination (which was hundreds of miles away), and through this experience, met people who had and continue to have a role in his life. Not only did he learn a new trade by working on the boat and fishing, but to follow his work hard, play hard mentality that fuels his passions.
