Tom Viemont, Co-Founder

Tom grew up in Pontiac, Illinois, a small town in the Midwest. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 1990 with a degree in Speech Communications and has worked in sales and management positions in technology companies since graduating. When he’s not working, he likes to listen to music or podcasts and also enjoys riding his bike. Last summer, he and a few friends rode 250 miles from Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C. Tom is a do-it-yourself type of person, so you can often find him baking bread from scratch, tending to his vegetable garden, pickling, learning how to make cheese, and even brewing his own beer. When he’s not consumed in DIY projects, Tom loves traveling with his family and exploring new places. Contact Tom at tom@beyondthestates.com.
