Tom was born in North Queensland on the Atherton Tablelands where he attended school. After moving to Mackay in 2012, Tom completed a Certificate III in IT and a Diploma of Business.
Tom realised his passion lay more in IT than Business during the course of his Diploma. After completing some online HTML and CSS courses Tom decided he would attend university in 2019. While planning to relocate to Brisbane to attend University, Tom was given the opportunity to jumpstart his IT career and begin developing his skills at iScape. Tom will be starting a Bachelor of Computer Science online in 2019 while working at iScape, which means he can continue his enjoyment of fishing in the Mackay region.
