He is a homesteader and gardener with a passion for cooperating with nature, even when it arrives as a bobcat in the chicken coop. He has also travelled in some of the wilder parts of Africa and Central America and has the stories to prove it. Tom has become a popular teller at the Sierra Storytelling Festival and is a 5 time winner of the Sierra Story Slam. If you catch him off-stage, beware!
