I met Tom on our trip to Saratoga Springs in 2010. At that time he'd just left the company I was looking to go work for.
As a friend of Jack's, I got to hang out with Tom a few times that week. Again, we got on well and we've kept in touch since.
I've worked with Tom on a few projects over the years with his company Packet Tide. It was through Tom's company that I was able to get paid from Under Armour without having to work out all nuances of international transfer at such short notice.
Tom, I'm grateful for your friendship, encouragement and accountability over these last 5 years.
