Tom has had a building company specialising in sustainable construction and the heritage sector, so has first-hand experience with building materials. During his MSc in Sustainable Architecture, Tom spent months developing and testing various bio composites in a green portacabin, resulting in Breathaboard. Having designed and experimented with the initial concept, Tom’s role is now to develop the business and raise awareness about materials and how they can enable people to live more healthy lives in healthy buildings.
When he is not playing around with bio-composites, he can be found speaking about them and their benefits. Other interests include sustainable business, circular economy and ecological education.
When he is not working, Tom is playing in nature’s playground either surfing, climbing, walking or watching his seeds grow in the garden.
