Full of the promise of fame in the big city, in 2006 Tom moved to London with an oversized tourist map to pursue his dream of becoming a world famous actor.
Two years down the road and with no contract to play the next Bond villain in sight, Tom made the bold move to turn his back on the fickle world of acting and instead seek the financial and emotional security offered to him by a career as a screenwriter.
Inspired by the line in Little Miss Sunshine “You do what you love and fuck the rest”, in 2010 Tom packed in the day job and has never looked back. Since then he has written and produced numerous adverts, shorts and music videos, along with his debut feature Tear Me Apart.
In 2013, Tom founded Cannibal Films with director Alex Lightman and cinematographer Ern Herrmann. Together they produced Tear Me Apart which premiered at the Austin Film Festival 2015 and was released in summer 2016.
His second feature 'Gun' is in development.
