About The Event

The newest member of the Her Many Voices Foundation Board, Tommy has been an active supporter of their mission and work for years. His varied career and volunteer efforts are an expression of his love for people and community. Whether it is his restaurant service background, music business management or mural work, it is  rooted in his deep connection to his heritage as a Hawaiian and his passion for art. A nationally celebrated muralist, Tommy has been painting murals since graduating from Denver East High School. After studying at the Colorado Institute of Art, he has painted murals in Hawaii, California, Colorado, Tennessee, and Florida. A professional artist, he also teaches art, as well.   

In addition to working in restaurants for over 30+ years, he has been heavily involved in the Colorado music scene. Tommy's involvement in the Colorado music scene began as a music lover, attending countless shows in clubs throughout Denver and Boulder. In 1994, Tommy was asked to help manage the popular Denver band Western Vogue. It was then that he became intimately involved in Colorado's music scene. He then worked with singer-songwriters Nina Storey and Liz Clark. He also helped on the Entertainment Committee for the CHUN Capitol Hill People's Fair for a few years, until he started and ran the Fair's Streetside Mural Project. He also served on the Colorado Music Association board for a few years, with one as President.  

Tommy is a hemp activist, with years growing hemp, harvesting hemp, and promoting hemp products. Currently he is an artist for the Colorado Hemp Company at all their NoCo Hemp Expo's and helped start and operate Serenity Remedies CBD as a manager of the hemp they grew for CBD production.  

Tommy helps feed and care for homeless, supports women's rights, and those choosing sober lifestyles. Tommy is a dedicated family man and creates a sense of welcome and connection with seeming ease in the communities he inhabits.  

This conversation will be led by Myrna James. James is a publisher, journalist, and interpreter of high tech. Her publication Apogeo Spatial illuminates how data from space is used to study the earth for the sake of humanity.
