Born and raised in Paris, Tom grew up at the heart of urban youth culture, understands its people and its territory, and shares its language. For three years, he worked on and accompanied the rise of the Parisian fashion label PIGALLE. Then Tom joined fellow co-founder, Yoan Prat, at OFIVE, a music TV channel at the early stage of the global mainstream rise of urban culture. An avid basketball player, Tom has played at a semi-professional level since he was 18.
In 2014, he and his partner, Yoan Prat, decided to start Yard: a cultural platform empowering communities combined with a communications and marketing consultancy for brands like Nike, Jordan, Apple, and Havana Club. Yard offers innovative, authentic, and cultural ways for its clients to connect with their audiences.
