Tom’s exposure to architecture began at a young age on his several family trips to Italy. Encouraged by his father, he began to appreciate Roman and Italian architecture. To this day, Tom enjoys taking vacations with his family and squeezing in a few architectural sites. Tom is also an avid soccer fan in all aspects of the game; from watching his kids play, to coaching, to going to a couple of World Cup games. The K2M values that resonates with Tom are nurturing relationships and the quest to learn. The best reward and affirmation of a client relationship when they return as a repeat client. Tom believes that learning is a continual process – as Michelangelo said at age 87, “I’m still learning”.
