Tom was one of the first trainers with NLP Comprehensive. He worked with the company for over twenty-five years as a trainer and Director of Training. He, along with wife Bobbi, created and directed NLP Austin for five years, the NLP Center of Maui for five years, and Arizona NLP for five years.
His background in cultural anthropology and work with indigenous people allowed him to investigate the connections between NLP and traditional or “primitive” cultural practices. He was particularly interested in the interface between personal identity and the cultural matrix from which it evolves. His legacy and teaching style live on in his many students, and in videos like the Portable Practitioner Training.
Tragically, Tom had an unexpected brain hemorrhage and passed away on Tuesday, April 24, 2012.
