Tomis located in Portland, OR
Tom graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in English
Tom loves to surf, ski and cook.
Tom comes to Convince & Convert following 20 years in the media & publishing industries.
Starting as an award-winning reporter in Phoenix, AZ, he eventually turned to the “dark side” of advertising sales, leading him to launch three newspapers in underserved markets in Arizona.
As the founding publisher, he brought business and community news to the cities of Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott and South Phoenix. Jay Baer, President of C&C and his wife Alyson even wrote a monthly food column for one.
Trading desert heat for Pacific Northwest rain, Tom now calls Portland, OR home and enjoys surfing, skiing and baking sourdough bread (he owned a bakery once, too).
