Tom has worked for Young America’s Foundation for over seven years and has been attending YAF conferences since he was in middle school. Dr. Burt Folsom was his favorite Foundation lecturer and helped inspire Tom to attend Hillsdale College, where he graduated in 2008 with a degree in religion and philosophy.
After college, Tom worked for HSP Direct, a conservative communications firm. At HSP, Tom wrote for the Phillips Foundation as well as other conservative organizations. From there, Tom joined the Catholic Diocese of Arlington where he helped to raise funds for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. The Bishop’s Appeal raised money for Catholic Charities as well as seminarians studying to become priests.
Feeling the call to work back in the Conservative Movement, Tom served as director of development for the American Conservative Union, the organizer of the annual CPAC conference before coming to YAF. Tom enjoys working with YAF supporters across the country who invest in the future of our nation’s young people.
He is an avid Washington Capitals fan and spending time with his nephews and niece.
