Hi, my name is Tom and I work in television.  If interested, you can find my professional bio and resume on Linked-In.

Over the past thirty-plus years I’ve worked in the AVL corporate theater, radio, live sound and broadcast television industries on live events from locations around the world. Some of the venues included Presidential palaces and the White House. I’ve built a video control room into the back of a coffee bean truck in Central America. A few of these telecasts have had worldwide audiences of one billion people.

As the Media Director at a megachurch in the 1980’s I developed a love for the Church and church performing and technical artists. It is to them that this website is dedicated.
