I love the intensity of method actors and what they bring to the screen.”

Additionally, in May of 2015, Tommy submitted a one minute pitch video to ABC’s 20/20 Sales Challenge, with Kevin O’Leary, of Shark Tank and won his sales challenge on national television out of thousands of students from all over the country. Tommy’s app, CreateMate, which is a social marketplace for creative individuals to create, connect, and collaborate on jobs and projects anywhere, was the reason why he was part of the show. CreateMate gained a significant amount of attention in the creative community in New York.
