Tommy is currently taking a gap year to travel around the US before attending Penn State University in the fall of 2021. He grew up in Westfield, New Jersey, where he was heavily involved in the school’s band program. He spends his free time skiing, hiking, surfing, and doing anything that gets him outdoors! He was part of a 12-person NOLS expedition in Wyoming’s Wind River Range in 2019. Since then he has been planning an extended cross-country trip: the one that he is currently on.
