Tom was brought up in West Wales with his family in the seaside village of Little Haven. His childhood was not necessarily ordinary living in the family business of caring for elderly people and later fostering looked after children.
During this time Tom taught himself to play drums and guitar and would regularly play in bands in Haverfordwest.
Tom went on to study Law at Swansea University before returning to Pembrokeshire to volunteer and eventually work with Citizens Advice in Haverfordwest. Tom moved to Cardiff to pursue a law career but soon moved to Tenovus Cancer Care where he built on his creative desires and joined their Sing with Us Choirs and also enrolled on a six week acting workshop at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
This changed Tom’s life.
Tom was encouraged to audition for the Everyman Open Air Theatre Festival’s production of Guys and Dolls and the rest as they say, is history.
Tom continues to act regularly and in 2019 performed in 9 theatrical performances throughout South Wales. Tom is trying to build on this experience by starting professional training in due course.
Tom has maintained a full time job during this time continuing with legal work throughout Wales, later moving into UK wide community development and since 2017 running the mental health service for Tenovus Cancer Care, letting him utilise his care and empathy to others in a more structured manner using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Solution Focus Approach.
Tom is keen to continue these interests in helping anyone going through challenging situations and not just those affected by cancer.
