NOAA DIR. OF SAFETY (RETIRED)

I have known and worked with Tom since 2002 when I joined NOAA as Chief, Safety and Health Division. He was under contract with NOAA on the West Coast performing highly technical IT and related work with later emphasis in GIS mapping. His work is flawless and always on time. Plus he has the rare ability to manage his bosses. Tom also has the intestinal fortitude and stamina to work independently as a small business.
