In his tan jumpsuit and brown work boots Tom blared his music out of his blue tooth speaker. “Playing music is one of my gifts,” he said. Sometimes he plays current pop, other times he jams to romantic jazz tunes. He doesn’t have a preference and is happy to DJ to anything.
“I prefer to be called ‘Messiah’ because I am blessed and I want people to know that.” Tom also talked about future goals: he is still waiting to hear back about a job he applied for, he is ready to have a girlfriend, and he hopes to have children someday. He prefers to have sons, but would be “okay” having daughters, too.
