Tommy’s illustrious career began around 1975 on the front porch of his home in Edmond, Oklahoma where his older (and bossier) sister Debbie would direct him in homemade plays. They would invite their parents, neighbors, and strangers walking by to sit on the lawn and enjoy their masterful works of art. He has always had a flair for the dramatic (some people would call it “just being moody”).
Throughout school, Tommy participated in drama in some fashion. His favorite thing was to pretend to be different characters with his best buddy Eddie. (Who knew 20 years later they would still be doing that?) When high school was over, Tommy began serving in a church and going to college in pursuit of an Oral Communications degree. (Okay…at first he was going to get an accounting degree but he failed Accounting 101 and honestly, what idiot would let Tommy do their taxes?)
After graduation, Tommy got married and moved to Frisco, Texas where he lived for 12 years serving as a youth pastor. In 2003, Tommy moved his family back home to Edmond where he currently lives with his wife and kids. When he’s not traveling with Eddie, he works at NEWCHURCH in Oklahoma City as the associate pastor of teaching and creativity. (If you’re ever in town, stop by and say “hi” -www.newchurch.tv)
The most important thing in Tommy’s life is his daughter Abby, son Hudson, and his incredible wife of over 20 years – Angie! If you ever want to see his face light up, just ask him to tell you about them! (However, don’t mention the accounting thing…it’s kind of embarrassing!)
