Scientist, musician, recording artist, environmentalist, lecturer and incessant observer... Tom Calten began his dance with life in Long Island, just minutes from the ocean. That childhood setting provided endless opportunities for exploration and analysis -- skills that he would use for things to come.
After a brief tour in a rock band, Calten earned a degree in microbiology and began a long career in the pharmaceutical field as a scientist and technical educator. With worldwide speaking engagements and program developments, he still managed to maintain a grip on his creative side. In his first book, "Depth Charges," Calten shares an analysis of his diverse life experiences with a characteristic sense of humor. Calten resides in Arizona where he continues to observe, write and compose.
