Tom Merklinger

Just like all children, Tom grew up watching Dudley the Dragon. What set Tom apart from the horrid unwashed masses was that rather than idolizing Sammy the Frog or Grandpa Robin like all the other kids, Tom looked up to Mr. Crabby Tree, played by Canadian acting legend Graham Greene.

Tom once met Mr. Greene at a mall in Ontario; there, the great thespian imparted these rarefied words: “Follow your dreams, kid.” And that’s just what Tom has done. After a long career playing the tree in school plays, Tom is now ready to step into the big leagues.
