I do a lot of different things professionally that all have their roots in presentation and/or performance. My 30 years in the entertainment business (standup, sketch & improv comedy, acting, screenwriting, independent filmmaking) have led me to my interests in other areas (presentation coaching, for example). I know this seemingly confusing site makes me look scattered.  I'm really not, I'm just exhausted from trying to keep 7 or 8 websites updated.

Tom's experience in show business - almost three decades - and his understanding of the importance of maintaining the attention of an audience helped him craft the presentation programs, seminars and workshops he offers to a variety of business clients. 

He continues to coach, teach, produce filmed entertainment and even hops up on the comedy club stage periodically.
