Tom joined the T&E communications team in January 2013 following a traineeship in the European Parliament. In the EP he worked in the team responsible for writing and filming the Parliament’s internal education and training videos, and was lucky enough to star in one which showed Parliamentarians how to adjust their chairs!
Originally from Scotland, Tom grew up in Brussels and now speaks fluent French as well as his native English. After leaving school, he studied English Literature as an undergraduate at the University of Bristol and Entertainment Studies at the University of California as a postgrad. He enjoys an active lifestyle and tries to kitesurf and wakeboard whenever possible. Tom also has a musical ear and plays piano and guitar, and is now trying to learn the bagpipes – much to his neighbor’s displeasure!
