Past experiences that help you at TallCat?

I enjoyed a run at working with the awesome team over at Creativ.com for a while as a producer for them. The last employer I worked for had a great group of people working for them however corporate America and myself don’t work well together. Hence TallCat 🙂

Life Mottos?

My elementary band teacher told me very early in life and it’s had a profound effect on me: “Practice makes permanent, not perfect.”

I like to be as light hearted as I can be but, you can lead a horse to water but, a bear can s@$# in the woods.

Everyday that I get the privilege of coming to such a fantastic place to do business with people that are some of the most kind and humble humans I’ve ever met I go home satisfied and ready for the next day. Let music take the wheel and steer life for a bit.

Tom, thanks for your time today. I got home and I swear, I can’t find your email address. I have address and phone but no email. Can you send that to me. I want to get started and work with you on a number of projects.
