Hi, I'm Tom.  I love product, technology, and strategy.

I'm currently involved with Prmm, a Salesforce app for the reinsurance industry, consulting work, and a couple of side projects.

I began my career as a reinsurance broker before moving into the tech world as the founder of SureUp, an insurance robo-advisor.

I'm open to new opportunities that allow me to work with cool people, have a big impact, and challenge myself.

Please contact me if you think I might be a good fit for one of your projects or you're interested in one of mine.

SureUp

Founder of SureUp

Helped consumers make better insurance decisions with SureUp, an insurance robo-advisor.  The app gathered home and auto quotes from competing insurers and scored each quote based on how it fit each user's unique wants and needs.  It helped users move beyond simple price-based comparisons by providing insights into the quality of the policies and the insurers behind those policies.

Singletrack Today

Singletrack Today is a serverless, machine learning, web app that uses stream and weather data to predict mountain biking trail conditions at Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park.  It was built to promote trail stewardship (riding on wet trails damages them) and hone my data science (Python) and serverless (AWS Lambda and S3) skills.  Learn more about the project or check out the live app.
