TOM (41) Adventure camp manager

This what-you-see-is-what-you-get family man has loads of experience when it comes to literal "survival" skills. As an adventure camp manager, Tom builds shelters in the wild for a living and sees himself as the natural provider for his tribe. His skills include fishing, hunting, building shelter and making fire, but how will he fair in the social game? Tom is a self-proclaimed loud mouth who loves the sound of his own voice. Not scared of confrontation, could this be his downfall in such a socially delicate game?[1]
