Tommy was born and raised in Staten Island, NY and began pursuing his interest in performing arts as a child during school. He was diagnosed with severe asthma as a young boy and immediately felt limited in normal life experiences as a kid. Throughout his life, Tommy has struggled with his condition, getting hospitalized countless times throughout his childhood. After years of overreliance on an inhaler, Tommy worked with his doctor to develop a treatment plan to help get his asthma under control. He was prescribed Dupixent as an add-on medication and has since gotten his life back on track.
