TPM EPISODE 17: TOM SCHAAR

Tom Schaar is your average 17-year-old...sometimes.  He goes to high school, likes to hang out with his brother and friends and gets in trouble with his parents for not doing his homework.  In his other life, he’s traveling the world, winning X Games gold and even finding time to buy himself an Audi.  While Tom can be the average kid on the personal level, there’s nothing average about what he brings to the table on the professional level.
