Raised in Minneapolis... 'twas a bitter cold evening on the set of the Cohen Brother's film "Fargo" that Tom had his first taste of prodution work. After studying at the University of Montana, and then the University of St. Thomas he headed west to the warmth of the California coast in 2001.
Cutting his teeth on broadcast commercials, music videos, and narrative film, Tom soon headed up production on projects for Elastic Creative and Bravo Company Productions in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Currently he is producing live motion and VFX film shoots at Shortchair Creative with an extraordinary team of directors.
Most recently Tom and Shortchair partnered with director Olek Lyzwanski to develop and produce the short film "Hog's Tooth" - an Official Selection at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the LA Shorts Festival, the Cannes IFF Courts Metrages, and was selected Best US Short at San Francisco Indie Fest.
Shortchair is currently in development with director Greg Jonkajtys on the sci-fi short "Ringers".
