  • Profile description
  • Hi!, I'm Tom.

    With 10 years in the British Army and 5 years working in the media industry, I have a wealth of experience and skills. Wether it's getting stuck in to a hard task in the cold and rain, or helping you learn some software or manage your social media, I'm your guy.

    I used to travel a lot with my military career, from Canada to the Middle East. Afterwards I moved to London, and worked in a creative studio for a few years but something was missing. I made the decision to move to the French Alps for winter, and since then I haven't stopped. My latest adventure was working in Nicaragua for a surf camp. I get along with everyone, and that's one of my favourite things about travelling; the people.

    I have a driving license for most vehicles, mechanical engineering qualifications, and professional photography and video equipment. Holding the top security clearance granted by the British government, I am someone you can trust, but also have fun with.
