Straight plays, the classics, musicals, cabaret,
you name it, Tom has done it.

 

From Brainerd to Broadway

Like many singers and stage performers, Tom began at very young age singing in church. Fortunate to grow up in the wonderful small town of Brainerd, Minnesota, he took advantage of the many creative opportunities in that community. He joined the local men's SPEBSQSA chorus (Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America), The North Countrymen, when he was in grade school. And at the Brainerd High School, he was a three-year member of the A Capella Choir and toured with them in the United States and in Europe.

After performing regionally, Tom moved to New York City in the late 90's. In 1999, he had his Broadway debut in Annie Get Your Gun at the Marquis Theatre. During his nearly a two year run, he logged 701 performances in that Broadway production. He left the show and received universal praise while playing the dual roles of Jekyll & Hyde, in the musical of the same name, at the Westchester Broadway Theatre for a total of 91 performances. 

Then in 2002, Tom took his craft to Los Angeles. During the next ten years he continued to find time to do theater even as he amassed over 100 appearances in over 40 television shows and films.  His stage work was recognized by the local press, including the LA Times , and he was lauded for his portrayal of  Captain von Trapp in multiple productions of The Sound of Music . He's shared the stage with Tony, Emmy, and Oscar award winners and his credits on this page attest to the diversity of his talent.
