Tom is an amazingly inept electrical engineer; an overpaid technician, really. He cut his teeth in the USAF working on the electronics of such modern day aircraft as the F-4 and the B-52. During this time, he figured out that he liked electronics and went on to Kollij in Southern Illinois, where he only barely graduated.
