It moved from NYC to Sacramento in September 2000. Being far from my family on the holidays was often hard for me. I will never forget how warm my childhood home felt on Thanksgiving. Like me, Tom isn't a Sacramento native. I asked him what he missed from home and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, what he was grateful for?

"I don't really miss anything about home because wherever I go I make it my new home. Thats not to say I don't mis my family, but I have always adapted well to my surroundings.  I'm grateful for all the opportunities I have been granted and all the challenges as well.  I feel that without some struggle, a person will not grow. One of my favorite quotes is - You can always learn more from failures than you do from always succeeding."
