"Although, I had reached the pinnacle of corporate accounting, I found myself wanting more. I was drawn to entrepreneurship and Konnex. I have the opportunity to help countless organizations form and build. And, in that process, I have found where my passion truly lies, at Konnex. While I enjoy assisting many small businesses with their accounting, I love to help others find a way to turn their passion into a successful business"- Tom Barnhill.

My mother gave birth to me July 28th, 1989 in Lahore, Pakistan. Ever since I was a kid I used to love building legos.

I used to ride bicycles everywhere and .I loved playing soccer, I was good at scoring and defending and Midfield. I also played baseball and I was really good at it. I enjoyed football too and was a great wide receiver.

I used to play with an elementary school freind of mine, who ended up being the #1 Player at the University of Maryland and drafted to Dc united. Even at 10 years old I told him he was going to be great. Sometimes you can just tell young children are destined for greatness. But that wasn't me. I was an average boy growing up, new to the world. I wanted the same thing like everyone else. Family, freind's and fun. And then I met Bob Proctor...
