A few years after Tommy moved to Illinois from Connecticut, he discovered Bernie’s Book Bank. Since then, he has fallen in love with the mission, spending three summers as a Bernie’s Book Bank intern. This year, Tommy joined the team as a full-time Processing Center Specialist. He strongly believes that every child should have the opportunity to discover their love of reading.

Tommy is currently taking a semester off from studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He was drawn to this field because of his love for math, but wants to pursue a career as a criminal trial attorney. In his spare time, Tommy runs marathons, bikes, cooks, and reads just about everything he can get his hands on. He still enjoys reading children’s books including H.I.V.E. and the Ranger’s Apprentice.
