Tom is a born and raised Jersey guy and businessman running to serve New Jersey's 11th Congressional district. Tom grew up in a hardworking, middle class family, and was raised with the same blue collar chip on his shoulder like so many other New Jerseyans. Early on Tom knew he wanted to go into business, so to help pay his way through school he worked 50-plus hour weeks for a Jersey catering company hand-in-hand with the owner.
No one knows better than Tom that small businesses are the backbone of America and New Jersey. After learning the ins-and-outs of how a small business functions, Tom went on to corporate America, starting his career at Thomson Reuters and then Samsung, where he was responsible for a program that generated over a billion dollars in revenue per year across the United States. Then Tom took his business expertise to an emerging artificial intelligence (AI) company, Workfusion, where he helped bring new technology to the world and helped grow businesses globally by building out Workfusion’s global go-to-market strategy.
In June of 2020, Tom felt a calling to do his part to serve America. During the past four years, he saw the policies Democrats were proposing, and having worked in business his entire career, Tom knew how harmful these policies would be for our economy, healthcare, and New Jerseyans. Then Tom decided to take his expertise and help the Republican National Committee fight for limited government, rebuild our economy and defend our American values.

After the campaign Tom returned to the business world because he was disheartened and disgusted by what he saw in Washington: politicians and bureaucrats on both sides just there to pad their bottom line and help their careers. Tom learned early on in his career that if you want something done, do it yourself. That’s why Tom decided it’s time to run and show New Jersey they have someone who will fight for them, not for special interests or DC insiders.
