Mission, Values, & Bio
Thomas is a young theatre artist & manager interested in innovative and contemporary works that expose the harsh truths of our reality. He strives to tell compelling stories, which are politically charged and extremely human, that illuminate rich ideas and connect the audience to the greater community. Grounded by the desire to positively impact lives, Thomas carefully curates provocative works that directly respond to the ever-changing world.
Artistic Excellence - Guided by a rigorously researched production approach.
Empathy & Humility - Having respect for the script, collaborators, and audience.
Dialogue - To connect individuals to society and initiate impactful conversations.
Currently residing in sunny Tampa, Florida, Thomas has strong ties to the Twin Cities as he trained at The Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists. As a director and producer, Thomas has worked on large scale musicals, full length plays, and original pieces in various venue types including unconventional theatre spaces.
In addition to his work as a theatre practitioner, Thomas thoroughly enjoys traveling with his family (37 countries and counting) and experimenting in the kitchen! He hopes to take his passion for theatre arts, business management, & servant leadership into a career as a Company Manager, and one day, a General Manager in Commercial Theatre.
