Although born in Chicago, Thomas grew up in the northern reaches of Texas, writing short stories that were rejected by some of the finest literary magazines in the country. After graduating with an MFA in Cinema Directing, Thomas has written and directed several award-winning short films, including a made-for-cable movie produced by Peter Engel (Saved by the Bell, Last Comic Standing). He now lives in the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is Burbank, California, where he works as a writer and director for film and theatre.
Recently, Thomas was a finalist for the NBC “Writers on the Verge” program, and a semi-finalist for the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship. He is managed by Lee Stobby Entertainment.
