Hailing from the Detroit-Metro Area, Tom enlisted in the Navy as a Nuclear Machinist Mate in 2008 and served six years on active duty. After his enlistment Tom started school at a local community college, later transferring to the University of Connecticut where he graduated in 2019 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a B.A. in Communications. Tom is currently a 2022 JD candidate at the NYU School of Law and is an active member of several organizations there, including positions as a staff editor on Law Review and as the co-president of the student veterans group (SERV). Having benefited from S2S’s help in his law school application process, Tom is excited to help pay it forward.
