Senior Vice President, Creative Services
People describe Tom as a happy guy. It’s probably because he’s doing what he loves. He’s obsessively detail-oriented and compulsively dedicated to good design. A generalist by nature, he has recently expanded his skill set with the addition of motion design. He’s also somewhat neurotic about typography. But in a good way.
Tom’s work has appeared in Graphic and Print Magazine and his web sites have been featured in Adobe Create Magazine. He studied graphic design at Penn State University and worked as a creative director in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, before moving to Maine to start his own business. In his spare time, he enjoys working on his mixed-media collages, photography, kayaking, camping and experimental cooking.
