Tom Jenkins started out this life by wanting to be either an FBI agent or a rock star. Learning at age 8 that being a ‘G-Man’ required higher math skills ,short hair and bad suits, he quickly settled on a musical path, playing drums in various rock and jazz bands in his formative years.
Born in Kentucky and raised in West Virginia, Tom’s parents’ always said, “Son, you have no where to go but up!” Secretly, they meant out, so Tom moved to Florida after college and caught the acting bug, as well as all the other bugs, mosquitoes and slimy, crawly things that the Sunshine State had to offer.
After honing his acting ‘chops’ in Florida, ( and love of good bbq and DEET) Tom moved to Los Angeles. A veteran of over 70 commercials, numerous television appearances and selected film ‘shorts’ ( or ‘cuts’; the food theme endures!) Tom is always looking to lend his common-man affability to any role.
