Tom returns as the head coach of the Round Rock Dolphins for his 19th season. As Head Coach his goal is to promote the sport of swimming through time improvements and having fun. He believes the purpose of summer league is to grow swimmers as athletes and to help build their confidence through learning and improving strokes in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
Tom is currently the head coach of the Round Rock High School Swim Team. He has also been coaching at RRHS for the past nineteen years and during that time period has been fortunate to see many of the Dolphin Swimmers move on to compete for the Dragon Swim Team, in college and then return to become Dolphin Coaches themselves. His teams have consistently represented RRHS at the UIL State Meet and many of his swimmers have received All State and All American accolades.
Tom was born and raised in Southern California but has lived in Texas since 1994. He graduated from UT Austin with a degree in History and teaches Social Studies at Round Rock High School in addition to his coaching responsibilities.
Tom, his wife Nancy and their three children (who are all Dolphins) live in Round Rock with their many animals. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, UT football and basketball (he misses Mack Brown and Rick Barnes), fishing, anything Star Wars, going to the movies, relaxing at Barton Springs and hanging out with his family.

I am a 25 year old Round Rock native who growing up had the unique experience of swimming for 13 summers with the Dolphins. I’m fired up to return this summer so I can give back pieces of wisdom and perspective about how to get faster the right way- by having fun in the process. I graduated from Seattle University in 2016 where I received a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and swam all 4 years, specializing in the breaststroke and IM events. After college I took a hiatus from swimming, but now find myself back in full throttle coaching for Lone Star Aquatic Club as well as Dolphins. More about me: My favorite movie is Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs because I love puns, especially about food. My favorite food group is chicken tacos. My spirit animal is a whale shark. And lastly, when I’m not coaching you’ll find me unicycling around my neighborhood or hiking on Austin’s nature trails.
