Thom grew up in Detroit, Michigan where he first learned to swim when he was four years old. Thom was the kid that would refuse to swim unless grandma was watching him! Among Thom’s many hobbies includes travel, real estate, and cooking! He swam competitively for many years, from 7 years old all the way through college. Thom believes swimming has taught him discipline, humility, and sportsmanship, and acted as therapy in his life.
