Tom Reno joined the College of the Arts as the Director of Web services in 2011. He oversees the design, development, and maintenance of the college web resources, as well as the design of the college’s visual identity. He works closely with faculty, staff, and administration to develop overarching strategic plans for the college's web infrastructure and services.
Introduced to computers at a young age, Tom grew up with a variety of Commodores and other early home computers around. Many hours were spent experimenting with BASIC programming, or laboring over custom designs in The Print Shop. Prior to working at UF, he spent nearly a decade in the publishing industry refining his passions for efficient code, grid-based design, and thoughtful typography. He is an experienced graphic designer, and a full-stack web developer; he is also an accomplished musician, a husband, and a father.
Outside of work you can find Tom spending time with his family, fiddling with vintage hi-fi equipment, and perpetually renovating a 1940’s house. He also plays guitar (and occasionally vibraphone and percussion) as member of the band The Mercury Program. You may recognize one of their songs as the theme music to the NPR show "Here and Now". Their latest record New Myths was released in 2016.
