Having started as a professional photographer, Tom is now deeply involved in social work, both in Norway and in Romania. In his daily job he helps troubled children & youth who are victims of drug abuse, sexual harassment and others. His impact on Romania is made through Hand2Hand, the NGO he founded back in September 2000 that supported Romanian youngsters with education in recent years. This is regarded as the most important contribution they can have – an education and a hope for work in the future. Their goal is to increase their projects so they can help as many as possible for a future with hope for a job. Tom is also devoted to bringing people together to leverage on the power of networking.
