Tom was born and raised on the Suffolk-Norfolk border in East Anglia, but lived in Scotland for almost twenty years before gravitating to Dartmoor in the Southwest of England. Tom has been storytelling publicly for over 15 years and writing for much longer.
He now teaches storytelling for Hedgespoken and has been known to mentor a writer or two. Tom is also occasionally still a craftsman, having been a leatherworker since 1999, and is sometimes still an acupunk, or community acupuncturist.
In 2015, he co-launched Hedgespoken travelling storytelling theatre and Hedgespoken Press and these are often his main focus, elliptical approaches to changing the world, blessed with plenty of Trickster and a good helping of unfathomable magic.
