Tom has been designing for the web since 1997. After nearly a decade of working independently in his own design practice, he was eager for a new challenge and the opportunity to further develop his skills on larger projects. Tom helps fill a dual role at Mule, creating not only clean, elegant user interfaces but also the standards-compliant code behind those designs.
Born and raised in the Seattle area, Tom is happy to now call San Francisco home. He resides with his wife (and Mule Project Manager) Dianne, son Delton, and two dogs in the Richmond District. Alongside his work on client projects, Tom also helps build and maintain Evening Edition, and co-hosts the daily Evening Edition podcast.
Outside of the office, he enjoys cracking wise on Twitter, exploring the city’s vast selection of dining and cultural options, and playing the occasional round of (extreme) croquet in Golden Gate Park.
In addition to his passion for design, Tom happily spends his spring and summer months obsessing over Major League Baseball, and the plight of his beloved underdog Seattle Mariners. He’ll gladly argue with any National League purists that the AL version of the game is the better one.
A self-taught designer, Tom is a former doctoral candidate in clinical psychology and received his MA in Psychology from New York’s St. John’s University.
