As a child Tom begged his Dad for Kickboxer and Blood Sport videos. His Dad, fortunately, denied his request and bought him "Vertigo" and "North by North West". These Hitchcock classics not only inspired Tom, but left him with so many questions he carried on watching these legendary films. It's because of this genuine interest and intrigue into filmmaking that Tom decided, from a very young age, that he would be a film director. Little did he know at this stage what wonderful opportunities awaited him in the States...
Tom studied at the University of Derby and graduated in 2003. In 2004 he left the sunny UK for the gloomy state of California, where he studied at Universal Studios in Los Angeles towards a post-graduate qualification in filmmaking and directing. In 2006 Tom returned to the UK to set up Light Films as a film production house that had the ambition of Universal Studios with incredibly low budgets generated from commercial projects.
