Hello, I'm Tom Beardmore. I created this site so that friends and relatives can keep up-to-date with what I’ve been doing.

I work at a large high-tech company in Austin, Texas, and even though I'm not a native of Texas, I lived there for more than ten years, and there's no other city like it. It's progressive, friendly, and vital. No place else that I’ve visited has as many opportunities. If you've never been there, I'll suggest that it should be on your 'must-visit' list.

I presently live in Topeka, Kansas with my furry critters, but I continue to work for the same employer, albeit remotely. Broadband and VoIP make it all possible for me to be in the office virtually. Perhaps one day, I’ll be able to return to Austin

As for me, my interests include music, especially classical and jazz; history study; biking; and almost anything high-tech (particularly digital photography, leading-edge technologies, and anything Mac-related). Although I'm not presently active in the sport, I also enjoy skydiving, with well over 900 jumps to my credit. Lately, I've been thinking about returning to the sport, but I would want to upgrade all of my gear, first. And that gets expensive!

I firmly believe in community service, having served as a member of the board of my homeowners' association when I lived in Texas, and for four years as a city council member for the city of Leander. I’m a member of an all-volunteer Search-and-Rescue team Yankee One, and I hold American Red Cross certifications for AED, CPR and First Aid. I have a strong commitment to working to improve our community, no matter where I call home.

I hope you enjoy your visit here. God bless you!
