Thomas Harford was born in Boston, MA. His mother, Angela, and his father, Tom, met as graduate students at Boston University. Tom has three siblings: Phil, Jennifer and John. While at a young age, the family relocated to Washington, DC, where Tom’s father went to work for the federal government, resulting in a long and distinguished career as a senior executive at NIH.

Tom developed an early interest in theater as a teen, and eventually went on to study with the fabled acting teacher, Sanford Meisner, at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater in New York City. He worked professionally Off-Broadway and regionally in theater and dance before returning to academic studies, ultimately earning a PhD in English Literature. Tom continued to work in higher education as both a teacher and administrator, eventually moving to his own consulting practice, specializing in learning solutions for organizations and individuals.

An avid martial arts enthusiast, Tom has been a dedicated practitioner for over 40 years.
