Tom, I'm glad to see your work here. As per the above checklist, I do have some insights that I think will be useful in improving the article:

  • I think the layout needs to be fixed.

Besides that, I think the article looks excellent. All the best, SFriendly.svg --Seabuckthorn  01:27, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Seabuckthorn, thanks for your review. I'm glad you had so few concerns over the article. I've split the "Early career" section into two paragraphs as per your suggestions above, but I'm not sure what to do about the "Personal life" section/paragraph. I've found some more info that could possibly be incorporated into the section, but it would be as a separate paragraph, which wouldn't really solve the problem of that paragraph being too short. I'll make the changes and then you can review as you see fit. Either way, hopefully this one issue won't stop you from promoting the article. – PeeJay 02:50, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
