Tom loves the challenge of tackling problems that customers face in their daily struggle to make great television happen. He also loves learning about new advances in technology and is passionate about giving his customer the best possible experience and customer service. At the tender age of 8 Tom got tickets for his whole family to a taping of an afternoon kids show in San Francisco and spent the whole taping session running around the studio pestering the engineers. Sound familiar? It seems that event sealed the fate of thousands of customers that Tom as pestered over the years. In grade school he was one of those infamous AV geeks who could run anything Bell & Howell could throw at him. In high school he joined the newly created TV dept. and crewed and directed the daily newscast, taping football and basketball games and producing student projects for the History and English depts. That led to a BA degree in television production at SF State U, numerous free-lance gigs and a short stint as a news production assistant in the Bay area before turning to a sales and systems integration career. 30 years later, Tom is still passionate about his work and thrilled to be working at ABS.
