Outside the Office

Tom is busy learning to balance a variety of outdoor interests—skiing, camping, hiking, gardening, and yard work—with the demands of being a first time Dad. He is looking forward to many backcountry skiing and hiking days with his son on his back!

He and his wife love living in the Green Mountain State and spend as much time as possible outside. Each year he tries to grow more vegetables and has already realized they need a bigger garden!
