I witnessed Tom grow a product organization from scratch, motivate hundreds of x-functional team members and facing enormous obstacles, land a mission-critical YouTube product for millions of creators.

            I was grateful for Tom's insights, vision, and creativity while I supported the growing team as an execution partner. He provided the right direction and strategy while keeping us informed and motivated. Tom has a great depth and breadth of knowledge – I was able to avoid potential missteps due to his generous sharing of his own experiences...

            Tom is a superb product leader and entrepreneur. As a leader, he is unusual in being really good at both the strategic and the tactical levels. He leaves no stone unturned in trying to solve a problem -- while keeping all stakeholders abreast with his rationales, methods and progress. I would invest in anything Tom works on.

            Every once in awhile I encounter someone who truly impresses and inspires me. Tom is one of those people. Wisdom: Tom has an amazing attitude. He has amazing values.

            I use a simple litmus to determine whom I recommend: would I spend my own money on their salary in a startup? With Tom, the answer is a resounding YES. He's great at team building, & has a product vision I have seldom seen. If you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with, hire, invest in, brain pick or otherwise cavort with Tom, do so.
