Tom first became interested in science fiction & science as a very young child thanks to his parents. His earliest memories of enjoying scifi were sitting with his dad watching first-run episodes of the original Star Trek. In a wonderful stroke of symmetry, his first-born daughter grew up watching first-run episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation whilst sitting with him. It is hoped this becomes a tradition for many generations to come.
Although a rabid fan of nearly all forms of scripted television, some of Tom’s favorite shows are all versions of both Star Trek and Stargate, Firefly, Falling Skies, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, the X-Files and Chuck. He also has a particular love for British television and dearly hopes to one day visit the United Kingdom. Until then, he remains sequestered in a dark corner surviving on a diet of dust bunnies and cosmic background radiation only able to see by the light of his three computer monitors. Pity him.
