Tom gained a wealth of experience spanning 20 years in the Air Force including the retired 505th, the USAF Academy Band and as the former composer/arranger for the United States Air Force Band in Washington, DC writing for America's International Musical Ambassadors. His musical creations have been heard from China to Carnegie Hall. With a break in service he spent a brief time in the L A area writing and having his music performed by such groups as Bill Yeager's highly acclaimed, Grammy nominated Los Angeles Jazz Workshop and Disney bands. He continued as a free lance writer after the Air Force and today is writing for the industry's top performing artists and entertainers and always venturing into new musical styles and form.

Among larger productions that have played on radio, television and stage are: "Nashville Memories," a musical show commemorating the radio career of TNN personality and legend, Ralph Emery. "The Beat Goes On" was especially written for Steve Gadd, one of the most influential drummers in jazz and pop music. "Beyond The Call," a multimedia tribute to women in the military, premiered at Constitution Hall , Washington, DC featuring Helen Reddy. The historic production of the great Glenn Miller, "Remembering The Glenn Miller AAF Orchestra," toured the U S and ended in Carnegie Hall. The creative musical arrangements from that show were produced for a PBS television special under the same title.

Short film and jingle credits have included such productions as, "Team Up, America," written for the '84 Olympics and used on a special segment of NBC's "Real People," "Commitment To Excellence," an international short film produced by the USAF Academy for their recruitment and "Waste Busters," an international jingle written for the Armed Services Network. On the local scene several Washington, DC area businesses have used Tom's writing for their advertising.

Over the years, Tom has composed and scored more than a 1000 performed productions in over 12 varied categories. With many commissioned works and several CDs to his credits, his music is always fresh and innovative. As a published writer (Walrus Music Publishing, Hal Leonard, Studio PR-Columbia, Warwick Music-England, Gold Branch Music), recent ASCAP Award winner (2005, 2006, and again for 2007), and award-winning jazz composer (1981 NAJE - 4th place, 1996 BBC Big Band Composition with the Doncaster Orchestra winning 1st with their performance of "Starscape" and the 2004 ITA Donald Yaxley Competition with a 1st place winning performance by Michael Brown of "Trilogy For Bass Trombone"), Tom is constantly working on new projects and productions. His professional musical training includes a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from The School of Music at Illinois Wesleyan University and graduate work in theory and composition studying with Koussevitsky Award winning composer, Roque Cordero at Illinois State University. Among his favorite mentors was his father-in-law, Bill Brown, who worked at NBC as a studio arranger and trombonist working with the likes of the great Don Costa. On a side note, Tom was an aspiring young painter at one time having one of his portraits on The Joey Bishop Show displayed by commentary guest, famed commercial artist, Norman Rockwell. Next to music, baseball is Tom's favorite pastime - go St. Louis Cardinals!
