Tommy grew up in the bohemian inner western suburbs of Sydney, where he attended a performing arts school and became infatuated with Rock'n Roll.
Tommy began playing music at a young age in local bars and music venues throughout Sydney, and later moved to Melbourne to pursue a music career.
Tommy was raised by his foster father after his foster mother passed away from breast cancer, and not long after his best friend died at a young age from a drug overdose. These events in Tommy's life have had a major impact on his relationships to this day.
Tommy has been in three serious relationships in his life, all of which have ended in heartbreak. This has led to a turning point in his life, now seeing the world in a different way, eager for new experiences, but often missing the ones right in front of him.
