Who in Colorado doesn’t love the great outdoors? A Colorado native, Tom was born in Boulder in 1986. When he was 7 years old, his family moved to Maine. Ever since he can remember, Tom has always felt the most at home in nature and the woods.
After graduating from the University of Maine, Tom traveled back across the country to rediscover his roots. He returned to Colorado and spent his first winter at Beaver Creek, working as a snowboard instructor.
He quickly discovered that snowboard instruction combined all the things he loved most; working with people, exploring nature, and spreading joy through helping others. He discovered a natural talent and passion for teaching and continued instructing at resorts across the country for many years.
After teaching for a while at Beaver Creek and Telluride, Tom continued on to Northstar in Lake Tahoe, where he pursued and achieved the highest level of Snowboard Instructor Certification, and eventually met the love of his life, Lilian. They are now happily married and living together in Denver. Tom continues to teach, working part-time as an instructor trainer at Arapahoe Basin.
During his travels, Tom lived in many beautiful places and saw much that our country has to offer; but no place ever felt more like home than Colorado. When he and Lilian were ready to settle down, there was never any question of where their lasting roots would be. They are proud to have come full circle, back to the place where they belong.
Through Real Estate, Tom has found a way to combine his passion for teaching and guiding others with his love of this beautiful state and the people who live here. He now dedicates his time to helping others achieve the same dream he once had: to make Colorado their home.
