***This is pulled straight from Tom's LinkedIn profile.****

Architect of legendary brands, EA SPORTS, DraftKings, and Humongous Entertainment. Investor, advisor, mentor, driving the convergence of sports, real money gaming, and video gaming.

Sports and gaming executive specializing in product and brand marketing, with deep supporting experience in business development and licensing.

Coworkers describe me as a team-first manager who consistently over-delivers by amplifying the strengths of individuals and coaching through challenging transitions. My teams have won dozens of marketing awards including PromaxBDA Sports Marketing Awards and Clios. I've built a reputation as an exemplary partner to development teams, and a leader who highly values data, but appropriately draws from a strong understanding of fundamentals from console, mobile, tabletop, Web3, and real money gaming.

Retired from traditional corporate roles, I now advise a wide variety of companies that pique my interests and passion for sports, video gaming, real money gaming, and support for the military.
