Tom grew up in Queens, New York where he worked as a photojournalist for several local newspapers and as a publicist for a State Assemblyman. During this time he shot in black & white, and developed and printed his own film. Tom later became adept at digital photography and has had his African wildlife work exhibited in New York City.

He has a BA in marketing from New York University and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College.The bulk of his professional career has been in finance, working at Lehman Brothers, and later at Atlas Capital.

His recent interest and fascination with virtual reality inspired him to get back in touch with his photography roots, and co-found bankstreet.
