Educator and Musician
“His diversity as a performer, skilled in both classical and jazz repertoire, in addition to being an accomplished flutist, provides an excellent model for the skills necessary to succeed in the ever-changing music industry.”
 
Greg Banaszak - Saxophone Journal, 2001
A performer, an educator; a versatile musician.  He is heard regularly performing in Des Moines, Iowa with EnglishCourtney Krause, and Scot Sutherland.  
 
Tommy’s success is linked to his two primary teachers: Greg Banaszak (international soloist) and Bob Reynolds  (John Mayer, Snarky Puppy).  He models both of their teaching styles in his own classroom at Urbandale High School, where he serves as director of the Wind Ensemble, Jazz One, Jazz 3, and the Urbandale J-Hawk Marching Band.  
 ​​
He proudly endorses TM Custom tenor saxophones designed by Randy Jones at Tenor Madness.​​
Notable awards include 2015 Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and 2006 & 2007 ASCAPlus Award.
