A 2005 graduate of Harvard University, Tom majored in East Asian Studies, and speaks fluent Mandarin along with four other languages. His ties to the emergent Chinese market are credited to numerous visits to China, many of them sponsored by the Chinese government. Tom appeared on many TV shows in China, being interviewed in Mandarin by prominent Chinese TV personalities. Tom is the Harvard cultural attaché to the famous Shaolin Temple, responsible for training such top Chinese film celebrities as Jet Li. His fellowship at Harvard enabled him to spend four months traveling the ancient Silk Road through Xinjiang and Gansu provinces in northwest and central China, as an editor for the best selling student travel guide LET’S GO. His esteemed Harvard thesis on Tang Dynasty frontier poetry won him an honors degree and was contributed to the Harvard Yenching Library following Magna Cum Laude recognition. These cultural advantages, coupled with his first hand, viable experience in the world of pop music and Broadway musicals, has afforded him a very unique expertise, for a Westerner, in the commercial Chinese and Asian entertainment scene.
Tom resides in Los Angeles and London.
