After finishing an excellent college career, which included two appearances in the national 16-team tournament, one final-four appearance, and three-time All-American honors, Tommy went into the wine business, then mechanical engineering, then fitness, before finding his passion in software development and website design. Along the way he married his college neighbor, Courtney. Today, Tommy is the owner and chief executive of Mercantyle, proud owner of a vast collection of wines, a house in South Denver, and a dog named Bonnie. Tommy and his Wife Courtney are expecting a new baby, due this summer! CONGRATS ON THE SEX, BIG DAWG!
