I chose to be part of this wonderful film because I wanted to be involved with something that has the potential to make a big impact, as well as bring awareness and representation to a community that deserves recognition. Also, I, love comedy, and the writing was so great!
Tom caught the acting bug when he was in the Christmas play in 4th grade in Sioux City,
Iowa. Acting suited him from that point on. Drama classes in HS and performing in
college plays were fun as well. After college and while teaching in Iowa, directing plays
and speech forensics, he enjoyed performing in Siouxland plays, filming commercials
and forming an improv troupe. Fast Forward to Hollywood in 1994. He’s a proud member
of SAG/AFTRA and has been an Abraham Lincoln Presenter for 20 years. He has a rich and varied career in television, film and commercials. He has been featured in the multi-award-winning TIN CAN, the recently released HEAVENLY DEPOSIT with John Savage and Barry Van Dyke, plus the upcoming ENTER THE DIAMOND.
I was immediately captivated by the film's narrative, and underlying message. Understandingly, I was thrilled when I got the call back to play Grumpy”, a character who is positively transformed through this experience.

I wanted to play a character who has always been in control of his life, both professionally and personally, as John, the character I play in the film, is. Yet, in the extraordinary circumstances he finds himself in, he decides to let go of that control. As an actor, exploring that act of surrender was very appealing to me.
