Tom was an early developer on Marvel's digital comics, helping to redefine the medium for the world's largest comics publisher. After completing his Master's in Design + Technology from Parsons in New York, Tom went to Comedy Central and Spike TV to found their mobile divisions where he produced SOUTH PARK 10: THE GAME, the first television network app COMEDY CENTRAL TAKE OUT - named Fierce Mobile App of the Year, the first made-for-mobile animated series SAMURAI LOVE GOD starring Ed Helms and Nick Kroll, founded Spike TV's MOBILE VGAs, produced and directed Robert Kirkman's BATTLE POPE: THE ANIMATED SERIES, and produced, wrote, and directed mobile content for Stan Lee, Hulk Hogan, Orlando Jones, Gilbert Gotfried, Ze Frank, John Mulaney, Sarah Silverman, THE DAILY SHOW, William Shatner, David Koechner and countless others.

Shortly after NYCC, HEROVERSE's first mini-series, ANYWHERE, was picked up for publication by Arcana Studios.
