Tom Kaschalk

Once a Clevelander always a Clevelander! I was born and raised on the Southeast Side of Cleveland, first in the Union-Miles neighborhood and then Slavic Village. After graduating from Cleveland State and spending a few years in local law enforcement, I had a lengthy corporate career which involved moving across the United States including stops in Florida, Texas and California. During my career, I was involved in both participating and leading organizations in investigations.

I returned back to the “LAND” a few years ago and it finally hit me! I’ve been a life long student of Cleveland history and fascinated with the cultures and characters in the city.
