Originally from New York, Tom returns there regularly to visit galleries. He also attends the major international art fairs to stay abreast of the current market.

Tom's years of experience placing high value artwork enable him to testify in cases involving blue chip art and large collections comprised of varied artworks. His experience working with high net worth individuals to build collections makes him uniquely qualified to address the issues involved in collecting art, and to give insight into the nature of collecting and managing art collections.
