Outside of the Office

Thomas was a collegiate rower and has a propensity for endurance sports, but has lived in erratic climates his whole life. Now that he lives in sunny California, he has kicked his “inner couch potato” and is getting back into rowing and other endurance sports. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and five year-old French bulldog.
