Founder & CEO
Thomas (Tommy) M. Head received his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Marketing from NYU’s Stern School of Business in 2011. Tommy’s career roles are diverse and include entrepreneur, actor, writer, and philanthropist. In 2006 Tommy founded the Childhood Cancer Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to directly helping families afflicted with childhood cancer.
Tommy’s vision for the Childhood Cancer Society (CCS) began when he was a 16-year-old high school student. Looking back on his experience of being evaluated for childhood leukemia, he realized that having family present during this ordeal was essential for him to cope.
The inspiration for the Childhood Cancer Society was not the only passion that came to Tommy in his youth. At nine years of age, he began participating in acting camps. At age 12, Tommy appeared in a play at William Patterson University and was shortly thereafter signed by an acting management company. His acting credits include numerous commercials and a role on ABC’s daytime soap opera One Life to Live.
It was Tommy’s love of acting that facilitated his career as a writer. Through his membership in the Screen Actors Guild, he participated in a volunteer program called Book Pals–adults reading to elementary school students. Tommy describes it as a great life experience and the catalyst for writing his book, Rudy Comes to Play on a Rainy Day. All proceeds from book sales are donated to Childhood Cancer Society.
