Tommy's story will make you stop......and think

THAT IS QUITE THE INTRODUCTION -- but don't let it fool you.  In addition to his list of credentials, Tommy is a humble, warm and caring individual who pours into people with passion, to give him the power to influence them in areas of self-development.

Tommy was a young man who excelled in everything he did.  His superior intelligence produced negativity which meant he had to work at being average to be liked - rather than hated - for both his scholastic and sports performance.

He opened this interviewer's eyes about racial profiling.  I will never be the same as a result of these insights.
