To be a successful developer is to be constantly learning disciplines that are growing and evolving at a dizzying pace. As a BMX cyclist, Tom does not get dizzy easily. He likes it when a project makes him jump a little higher. The Healthways EV4 project is an example.
"It was a huge project with a ton of different pieces. I learned a lot of new stuff about strategy and user interface/user experience design before it was over."
Tom collects vinyl. Records! And in addition to riding BMX, he plays guitar. But probably not at the same time.
