Listen to his story from growing up with negative influences and hitting rock bottom, to changing his life through aviation, climbing adventures, and inventing a fitness product.
Tom is on a quest to become the 15th American to complete the Explorers Grand Slam. This crazy adventure involves summiting the highest peak in each of the seven continents, and skiing to the North and South poles.
Expect to find Tom diving with sharks, skydiving with his son, and taking on new adventures.
