Born and bred in South Auckland, Toms Father is full Samoan and his Mother is German Samoan, both are from Poutasi, Falealili on the beautiful island of Upolu.

Also a talented singer, dancer and actor, Tom has appeared in a number of TV commercials and played many leading roles in a number of theatre productions such as "Dawn Raids", "Our Street", "Blood Wedding" just to name a few, and most recently he had a leading role in New Zealands first Pacific Island musical hit The Factory produced by the Kila Kokonut Krew.

A real family man, in his spare time, Tom enjoys watching movies, playing the guitar and spending time with his beautiful partner and their daughters Leandra-Malan and Ayvah.
