Outside of Work
Tom’s main interest is music, both listening and playing. He’ll have a go at most instruments but is half competent at the guitar, playing in cover band ‘Dr Teeth’ (available for weddings, parties, bar mitzvahs…). Most of his time is spent enjoying time with his family and clearing up after his two young daughters.
