A veteran of 20 years in the newspaper and publishing industry, Tom began writing as a “stringer” for the Trenton Times while attending The College of New Jersey. After graduation, he worked as the sports editor of the Hopewell Valley News and as a reporter and special section manager at the Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest newspaper.
In 1994, sensing the call of the Lord, Tom left the Star-Ledger and spent a year in the advertising department at Christian radio station WWDJ before becoming the publisher of the Tri-State Voice, a monthly Christian newspaper that covers Metro New York City. In the spring of 2007, after writing two different articles concerning the spiritual history of Princeton University, Tom again sensed the Lord’s will, “expanded his tent pegs,” and joined Christian Union. Tom and his wife Christen reside in Oakland, New Jersey, and are the proud parents of two children, Victoria and Matthew.
