About Tom

author_main_imgTom has never walked on the moon, never played in a Super Bowl, and he never drove a race car – He’s just a regular guy who worked his way up from the streets and life in an outlaw Motorcycle gang and lived to tell about it.

His stories are awash in beer, blood and bullets, nevertheless, the life lessons are enlightening, enriching and exciting!

More than two decades ago, searching for his inner drive, Tom quit college and submerged myself in the motorcycle underworld on the Lower Eastside of Manhattan. This was the first time he took a left turn when everyone else was going right.
