    Thom has been with Checkered Flag about 20 years and has been at Honda, VW, Hyundai, Budget Blvd, BMW, and now MINI! When not at work, you can find him at DD or Starbucks where him and his dog Koa enjoy coffee and pup cups. Born in Maryland, so of course he roots for the Birds of Baltimore, both the Ravens, and the Orioles, slowly becoming a Nats fan as well. Off time may include a bourbon and the occasional cigar from his deck overlooking the Lynnhaven River. Most all the family resides in California now, so one day a relocate to San Diego or San Fran will happen! Openly addicted to Podcasts, driving to and from Checkered Flag lets him catch up on daily events, history, or a good murder mystery.

    Fun Facts

    • Thom can wiggle his ears, yay
    • Still loves Fuji apples the best
    • Daughter, Step Son, and Step Daughter graduated from the triangle of UVA, JMU, & VCU
    • Favorite zip line was down Blackcomb Mountain in British Columbia
    • Somehow likes Nickelback
    • Strongly believes InstaPot and AirFryer saved him from a life of eating out.
