Tom's films have been featured at the American Museum of Natural History, the Walker Art Center, and the Guggenheim. His work has screened at hundreds of film festivals and has been televised internationally. He wrote and directed IFC short film favorites Das Clown, Don't Run Johnny, and Rubber Gloves. Tom, a veteran of the Sundance Film Festival, recently completed the dramatic comedy Pushing Dead--a love story between a man and his disease. The film was a Sundance Institute/Rockefeller Foundation-supported feature starring James Roday, Robin Weigert, and Danny Glover. It screened at over 50 film festivals, garnering 10 best-feature audience and jury awards along the way--and a few notable awards for the actors too. Pushing Dead was released in North America in 2018 and is available on most digital platforms. Tom lives in San Francisco's Tenderloin with his scrappy little dog, Charlie.
