About Tom

Meet Thomas! Now one of three Toms in the office, Tom sets himself apart by being the office geek. He can talk your ear off about D&D, why the newest Star Wars movies are just ‘meh’, and the proper things to do in the event of a zombie apocalypse.


If you could pick a ghost to haunt you, who would you choose?

Robin Williams. If I’m going to have someone randomly pop in and out they better be funny! Plus, he already has experience flying from Hook.

What is the worst purchase
 you’ve ever made?

I bought a fedora in 2005 and will never speak 
of it again.

What is your least favorite quote?

"If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best." – Conceited Homewrecker

What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?

Building LEGO cars and then racing them down a hill. The prize was almost always a bead necklace!

What’s a holiday that doesn’t exist that you’d like to create?

National Food Fight Day. I’ve always been jealous of La Tomatina in Spain and think it deserves an upgrade nationwide. Imagine all the people and animals that would be fed!

What’s the craziest thing that happened to you on the CTA?

I got on the Redline heading north during rush hour. At the Chicago stop, a man fully dressed as Jesus came on carrying a crucifix and all. Didn’t sit or 
say anything.

If humans went through a metamorphosis, who or what would you turn into?

Tom Hanks. He is the epitome of Toms. He is perfection at everything he touches and the nicest man - even his name is T-Hanks!

What mythical creature do you wish existed?

Genies. We can then FINALLY get to the bottom of figuring out if we can wish for infinite wishes/infinite genies.

If you had 24 hours before a worldwide game of Hide-n-Seek started, where would you hide?

Wouldn’t you like to know.

What is your ratio of choosing truth vs. dare?

65% Truth to 35% Dare.
