BIOGRAPHY:

Rather than going straight into law school Tom First decided to move to Nantucket Island with some friends. To pay the bills he got his commercial fishing license and started buying clams off the local fisherman to resell them to some local shops for a few cents more a clam. His parents thought he was crazy. He later went on to start selling juice to those same shops on the island, which eventually blew up into Nantucket Nectars.
