Tommy: “The Web Guy”

My name is Tommy. I’m the guy that kind of makes this site hum along. I am 41 years young and live just outside St. Louis, Missouri, but have lived in a number of places. I was born in southern Illinois but then lived in Louisiana, Texas, Kansas, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia, and now Illinois again (in that order).

I’ve had a fun and varied life that just seems to get better and better each year. I played Division I golf, worked for and studied with the man who hired Walter Cronkite and fired Edward R. Murrow, walked large sections of the Appalachian Trial, ran a suicide hotline, and my parents swear I am the most photographed child in the world standing beside a cannon (my father’s PhD is in Civil War history).

I spend my non-work hours playing golf, taking bad photos, mountain biking, reading, playing with my PS3/PS2/N64/Sega Genesis gaming systems, listening to music, and obeying the detailed instructions of my wonderful pootie.
