Tom trained as an actor at RADA and has 20 years’ experience performing on stage and screen. He spent two years at the Royal Shakespeare Company playing lead roles.
Over the last 14 years, alongside his acting, he has worked as an education practitioner, supporting theatre education programmes at the RSC, The Young Vic, Good Chance Theatre, London Shakespeare Workout Prison Project and, most notably, Shakespeare’s Globe where he was a learning consultant for many years.
During that time, he worked with thousands of school children of all ages and teachers from around the world. He founded Bright Torches in 2021 and is delighted to be collaborating with the amazing Bright Torches Associates to continue to explore the impact that rehearsal rooms can have on classrooms.
He lives in West Sussex with his wife and their four boys.
