Tom graduated from Nipissing University in 2008. After four years of studying biology, he moved to British Columbia to work at a fish hatchery in Sechelt. For a year he gained valuable experience working in the aqua culture and fisheries industry before returning home to Huntsville. He is the driving force behind the Huntsville Aquarium initiative and would like nothing more than to eventually open and manage it. He is passionate about guiding and adventures outdoors but he is even more dedicated as an educator and environmentalist. He thinks big and wishes to cater to the public at large while educating them on fisheries biology, animal ecology, sport fishing and the importance of conservation for the future. Taking one or two people to a lake at a time just isn't big enough for Tom. His ultimate goal is to bring the lakes to the masses, open the Huntsville Aquarium, and change the way people look at the water.
