Tom was born in Yonkers, NY and in 1968 was the youngest member of Mensa in the country at that time- and is to date, the highest tested individual in Mensa at that age. Educated at the University of California, Tom moved to Arizona after college in 1994, and went into the insurance business. After being a top agent for NY Life Insurance, he decided to become an independent broker in 2005 (Lotusbenefits.com) and is now a successful enterpreneur and author of the column 'Conservative Issues from the Desert'. He calls Glendale, AZ his home, where he does volunteer work for various issues around the state.
Conservative, funny and a candidly frank speaker, Tom is available for consultation and speaking engagements on subjects from politics to marketing. "The Return of the Kings" is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble nationwide. Look for his next book, "The American Beacon" this Fall.
