About Thomas

Greetings!

My name is Tom and I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and born Entrepreneur. I currently run a design firm called Anchor Point Collective (www.anchorpointcollective.com), primarily working other entrepreneurs to help make their startups come to life. I've also got quite a few original entrepreneurial pursuits that I'd like to see come to life, so I'm always on the lookout for potential cofounders in that regard.

Additionally, I am something of a digital nomad. I've leveraged the remote nature of my career to create a lifestyle based around perpetual travel. Thus far, I've visited five continents, and I have no intention of stopping any time soon.

Work Experience

Owner/Founder

Anchor Point Collective LLC

July 2016 - Today

Anchor Point Collective is a full-service design agency that aims to make the creative process as easy as possible for entrepreneurs, innovators, and business owners. I started this firm after realizing the corporate environment was simply not for me. I wanted to work on projects that I was passionate about, projects that allowed for a greater degree of creative freedom, and projects that made a difference. To date, I have secured clients across the globe, and have left nothing but positive testimonies in my wake.

Freelance Graphic Designer

The Creative Group

July 2015 - December 2016

I began my creative career working on long-term freelance assignments through The Creative Group (a subsidiary of Robert Half). They placed at numerous big-name companies where I was able to work with the best of the best, and was rapidly exposed to a wide variety of creative disciplines. As assignments and positions were as follows: Quidsi (an Amazon company) - Production Designer Verizon TV - Production Designer Radical Media - Production Designer Horizon Group USA - Packaging Designer Sakar/Vivitar International - Packaging Designer Engender Health - Interim Senior Designer
