Tomi has been on tour twice with Pam Tillis when in Australia as well as with the Warren Brothers and in Troy Cassar-Daley's support band for Merle Haggard.

He has backed such artists of repute including Lee Kernighan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Anne Kirkpatrick and Alvy Pool. He has recorded on CD's for Troy Cassar-Daley's first album, on both of Alvy Pools Albums, Karyn Lynn, Pat Drummond, Tracy Costa, Mark Jackson and Hunter & Suzy Owens.

Tomi had already learned to play the banjo which made it easy for him when he started using pick blocking on the pedal steel as developed by Paul Franklin.

His influences are Paul Franklin and to some extent Buddy Emmons and Lloyd Green. Tomi claims that he is obsessed with speed picking and blocking. He plays a double neck 10 stringed x 2 Emmons with 8 foot pedals and 7 knee levers. Tomi lives in Sydney.
