Tom was born in London and grew up in various parts of the world before working for over ten years in the United States. Tom is always curious about people and their respective cultures, and Hong Kong has always captivated him. In early-2016, Tom fulfilled a lifelong dream and moved to Hong Kong, which happily led him to Simpson Marine. Tom’s father grew up boating off the east coast of the United States, and both his love and respect for being on the water were quickly passed on to Tom and his younger brother. After childhood summers sailing and boating in Maine, Tom spent recent adult years enjoying the waters near Boston Harbor and also in the vicinity of Palm Beach, Florida. A day spent boating is a day well spent, and this is something Tom looks forward to sharing with you.
