Board Member
Tom and his wife, Susan, first came to the Colvin Run Dance Hall in 2006 in search of a venue to dance social ballroom. They quickly fell in love with the rich history and charm of the old dance hall. 'I still enjoy watching a first-time visitor walk in the door; look at the wood panel barrel vaulted hall and say, ‘WOW’! says Tom. 'The WOW factor is universal for everyone that walks in the door -- this place affects people that way.' Susan adds, 'We were immediately struck by how friendly and welcoming the people were towards us.
Background

Tom has served on the CRCA Board of Directors since 2007. He was responsible for soliciting donations from local contractors to install a new air conditioning system, exterior painting and carpentry work, new quarry tile floor in the kitchen area and renovation of both bathrooms. In 2007, Tom and Susan established and co-hosted a monthly Argentine tango dance (milonga). Tom and Susan currently host the 5th Saturday Blue Moon milongas. 'We knew from the first time we walked in the door that this was a special place and a perfect venue for the local tango community,' says Tom. 'There is no agenda here, we just want everyone to have a great time in a casual and friendly atmosphere.' In his free time, Tom enjoys designing websites. He designed and built Susan's Tango Boutique website, which sells Nueva Epoca tango shoes and Werner Kern dance shoes. Tom occasionally DJs at Colvin Run and other local milongas. With a background in engineering, Tom has worked most of his career for the Clark Construction Group. Tom and Susan live in Vienna, VA. They have two sons, Andrew (22), a recent graduate from New York University, and Mike (20) attends college in Colorado.
