About "Wolf" Elliott Tom "Wolf" Elliott

Talent booking has been Tom's second career for over 30 years, so he's been in the trenches and knows it all from the ground up. Starting back in 1975, he managed and booked a popular street singe from Boston, and from that built up an agency that represented over 100 different acts primarily in the street entertainer and vaudefille venues. But he'sworked with some legends too, like the Gene Autry Family. Drawing from his main career as a marketer and sales specialist, he's supplied talent to hundreds for hundreds of events, ranging from private birthday parties and weddings to municipal events and commercial grand openings. Running a talent booking agency is a fun occupation that he'd like to share with others. What he's accomplished can be duplicated by anyone, with just about any background, in any city or town in the world. For some it can provide a nice part-time second income, for others it can mean a brand new full-time career. And it can lead to even more exciting possibilities such as talent management, record, television, and radio production, and movie scout. Tom was born in Malden MA, graduated high school there, took some evening college courses, and joined the computer revolution in its early days as an operator and programmer. Eventually he switched over to marketing and was a marketing and communications director for several software companies. He owned a bookstore, was a Sunday school teacher, youth leader, and lay preacher, as well as assistant sales supervisor for the Shaklee Corporation. He is now semi-retired, but writes a monthly book review column for MENSA's national and international magazines, runs Interim Marketing Services, and is founder and director of Boston Paranormal Investigators, a group similar to SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters. He's divorced, with three children - Tom, Lisa, and Dawn, all now grown and pursuing their own careers, and he's a surrogate father to a little girl named Angel. His interests, besides ghosts, include UFOs, megavitamin therapy, polyamorism, and new age and folk music, and he's an omnivorous reader.
