Tom Shea is one of our project managers and he hails from Newington, CT. Tom was a professional actor from age 15 to 30, performing on Broadway, on TV and in film. When he wasn’t acting, Tom was often helping set designers and carpenters build sets. When he left acting, he pursued his new-found love – construction. He eventually started his own finish carpentry company and worked on several Conrado homes throughout the years. Coming to work with the Conrado Company full time was a natural transition. Tom loves incorporating his creative background into building one-of-a-kind custom homes. Outside work, he delights in watching and coaching his three children in various sports. He also sings and plays guitar and will never turn down an invitation to a weekend wine tasting.
Tom tells us about a head-turning day on the job:
I sing with "The Merrie Olde Christmas Carolers", a professional Christmas caroling group that my wife Ellen runs. Occasionally I will have a gig after work and will need to get into costume at the jobsite. Imagine the looks on the faces of my fellow construction workers, when I appear in full "Dickensian" garb. It never fails to get a laugh!
