Thom’s undergraduate major at San Jose State University was Broadcast Communications. He studied radio, television, and film. Thom holds a Masters Degree in School Administration from the University of San Francisco.
In his former school district, Thom created a school wide closed circuit broadcast system as the first component of a multi-media center. A rather sophisticated video production studio was developed for elementary students and staff.

He has provided training in many multimedia presentations, desktop publishing, video production, digital editing, podcasting, and Internet research.
The relationship between our schools and the community is among Thom’s highest professional priorities. Technology and the Arts are both phenomenal conduits to nurture and enhance those relationships. We, in education, have a great story to tell and we have awesome tools at our fingertips to do just that.
