Tom's background is initially from international sport competing for Great Britain from a Junior to Senior in Tournament Waterskiing. Before retiring completed a Sports Science degree to assist his training and hopefully future career. Noticing the demand for professional sports injury services in the UK he went on to study Physiotherapy at Guy's Hospital.
