When Tom was 11 years old he was playing tennis on a court next to Rich in Falmouth, MA. When Rich was finished with his lesson, Tom promptly asked him if he would stay for a few extra minutes and hit with him. Sixteen years later, and many Aceing events and hitting sessions later, Tom joined the Board in 2018.
Tom played tennis collegiately at Elon University in North Carolina and has spent much of his adult life coaching all levels of tennis. He participated in the early growth of Aceing by helping start the Weymouth Club program in Weymouth, MA, hosting a round-robin tennis tournament while in college to benefit Aceing, and assisting the programs in Washington, DC.
Tom is the Proprietor and Winemaker of Darling Wines in Napa Valley, where he and his wife, Ashley, currently reside.
