My name is Thom. I am a graphic artist and work out of my own home. I have a wide variety of interests as you will see below. I love nature and science as well as music and art. I am a rather devout Greek Orthodox Christian and spent over 6 years studying Orthodox Theology in a monastery. I have traveled a little and have tons of interesting stories.
