Personal History:

            Tom grew up living the life of the Starfleet Brat.  His father moved from post to post over the years and took the family with him.  Tom is the youngest of three and the only male.  He was basically home schooled, due to the frequent moves.  He never learned to settle down anywhere and as such sees himself as a traveler.
            A womanizer to the core Tom has learned to talk fast and run even quicker over the years.  He acts before he thinks when it comes to the opposite sex.  A pretty face and smile and Tom is in trouble.  His father got him an appointment to Starfleet Academy, in the hopes of keeping Tom out of trouble and teaching him discipline.
            Tom went along with the idea due to the prospect of seeing the universe.  He quickly gained the reputation of a ladies man at the Academy.  After making a pass at an Admiral’s daughter he found himself on the edge of expulsion.  Through some fast talking he managed to keep his spot at the Academy, but not without further problems.  Upon graduation, instead of being posted to a research vessel the Admiral in question had Tom posted to a ship that he knew would be at the center of any fighting that broke out on the Dominion border.  Tom feels lucky that he drew the Swiftsure, in that a good majority of his graduating class did not survive the war.

            His only true hobby is playing the Guitar which he has done since the age of 4.  In between shifts and at stressful times he uses it to relax.  At other times he has used the guitar to charm members of the opposite gender. 
            He received an Award of Merit for actions preformed in the line of duty while on an away mission.
