Tom was born and raised on a farm in central Missouri, where he learned the value of a good work ethic and developed a love of the outdoors. His father was a forester for the Missouri Department of Conservation and Tom spent his summers as a volunteer on the wildfire crews and fishing the clear Ozark streams.
Tom served six years in the Navy and was stationed overseas, in Florida, Virginia and Washington. After his release from active service he started Osage Onsite Systems, a utility excavation company specializing in building sewer treatment facilities in rural Missouri. He and his wife sold their farm and the business in 2012 and moved to Oregon to pursue other dreams.
Tom has been an avid bow hunter for over thirty years and has built and sold traditional archery equipment for about fifteen years. He loves all kinds of hunting, fishing, and just about any outdoor activity but especially enjoys mentoring kids and introducing them to the great outdoors.
“I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest during my tour in the Navy and I feel truly privileged to call the most beautiful place I’ve ever been ‘my home’. I know first‐ hand the challenge of finding that one special person who wants to purchase your unique property and has the means to do so.”
