Thomas Gaughan identifies as a spirited team leader with a diversified work ethic forged through years of customer service. After nearly a decade of working in the New York City restaurant scene, he migrated northward to the happy farming valley of western Massachusetts. In addition to his role with Quonquont, Thomas coaches boys and girls water polo at a local boarding school in the spring and fall seasons. A passionate music lover, a fish in the water, and a steadfast advocate for kindness and empathy, Thomas’s favorite cocktail is the Corpse Reviver No. 2 — one of many dramatically named prohibition era creations that is meant to bring one back to life.
